Out now is New Order’s first new track since 2015’s album “Music Complete”. “Be a Rebel” was originally planned as a release ahead of New Order’s tour this autumn, but with live shows on hold and their dates re-scheduled to 2021, the band decided to release it anyhow. The track is a typical, but good, New Order track.
The single is available digitally now and will be followed by 12” vinyl, CD, and digital bundle formats featuring remixes.
New Order will also release the definitive collection of their 1983 studio album “Power, Corruption & Lies” via Warner Music on October 2. The box set will be accompanied by individual releases of the four 12” vinyl singles from 1983/1984 that didn’t appear on the original album, beginning with “Blue Monday,” followed by “Confusion,” “Thieves Like Us,” and “Murder.”
