New Order have just revealed that a brand new album is currently in the works and to keep and eye out for it sometime this Fall.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, the 80s band revealed the news that they have already complete two tracks that will be featured on the record; one titled “Plastic” and another titled “Restless” which will feature The Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands.
The yet-to-be-titled record will be the first since bassist Peter Hook left the band back in 2007 and the first record with returning keyboardist, Gillian Gilbert.
This also marks the band’s first new album since 2005’s Waiting for the Siren’s Call. If you’re currently telling yourself that we’re wrong and that the band released a new album back in 2013, then technically you would be right. Both 2013’s Lost Sirens and Waiting for the Siren’s Call were actually written and recorded at the same time.
The new record will be released through Mute Records, the indie record label they signed with last year. When the signing was done, Mute founder, Daniel Miller was particularly excited about it.
“This is an exciting new chapter for both Mute and New Order and I feel privileged to be working with artists with such a long, creative, and successful history. When the possibility of us working together first came up, I was invited to hear some of the new material and immediately had no doubts, whatsoever, that Mute would be the right home for New Order. We’ve already had a number of creative conversations, and am looking towards an exciting future.”
The band mirror the sentiments by saying: “New Order are delighted to be signing to Mute. We couldn’t imagine a better place to be than working with Daniel Miller and his team. Mute has a superb roster of artists and a history that complements our own. In many ways, joining the label feels like we are coming home; returning to our independent roots.”
