New Order to Release ‘Music Complete’ in September


When New Order signed to Mute Records last year, the 80s band had promised fans that they would be releasing new music on the label as soon as possible.

Now, the group have officially revealed that their tenth studio album, and their first with Mute Records, is set to be released this Fall.

During an interview back in January with Rolling Stone, the band had confirmed they had finished recording two tracks that would be feature on the then “yet-to-be-titled” record.

Today’s news reveals not only the name of the band’s new studio record, but also the track list, album art record and release date.

New Order’s album will be titled Music Complete and will be their first new set of songs since 2005’s Waiting for the Sirens’ Call.

While this marks the band’s new album in a decade, it also marks the return of keyboardist Gillian Gilbert who official returned in 2011. Gilbert left the band shortly after the release of 2001’s Get Ready to take care of her children. Music Complete also marks the first record since the departure of bassist Peter Hook in 2007.

Instead of having the record produced by a third-party, Music Complete was mostly produced by the band themselves with the exception of three tracks. The Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands was confirmed as a collaborator earlier this year and helped produce two tracks while super-producer Stuart Price, who previously had worked with Madonna and The Killers, helped produce another track on the album.

Music Complete is set to be released on Sept. 25 while pre-orders for the album are also currently available on the band’s website.
