This legendary electronic group have returned with tenth studio album Music Complete, and there have been significant changes to the line-up. This LP sees the return of Gillian Gilbert, who last appeared on 2001's Get Ready, and while it is the first release without founding bassist Peter Hook, Tom Chapman has ably stepped in. The record features a number of big-name collaborators - the Killers' Brandon Flowers sings on Music Complete's final song 'Superheated', Iggy Pop adds vocals to 'Stray Dog' and Elly Jackson of La Roux contributes to three consecutive tracks: 'Plastic', 'Tutti Frutti' and 'People on the High Line.' While previous releases have been synth or guitar driven, Music Complete offers a more even split between the two and ought to appeal to fans of both directions.
The new songs sound even bigger and better live alongside the greatest hits from the band's old records, so secure your New Order tickets at StubHub today.
New Order Biography - Synthpop Pioneers
Formed from the ashes of Manchester band Joy Division in 1980, this synth rock act have since earned considerable acclaim in their own right. While their debut record Movement maintained the dark electronica vibe of their past success, second album Power, Corruption & Lies saw the group forge their own path. A more upbeat synth-led sound emerged influenced by Italo disco, and 1983 single 'Blue Monday' was a huge shift in direction, pioneering a sequencer-led dance music movement and becoming the highest-selling 12" single in UK chart history. They continued to grow in popularity throughout the decade, with 'True Faith' and 'Fine Time' the most notable charting singles, but had to wait until 1990 for their first UK number one: 'World in Motion', a collaboration with John Barnes for the England football team. The band went took a break in 1993 to work on assorted other projects, but returned with renewed vigour five years later with Get Ready and Waiting for the Sirens' Call. They went on a further hiatus in 2007, but after reforming in 2011, recent records Lost Sirens and Music Complete indicate a band at their peak.
