Two years since the release of “Lost Sirens,” New Order is ready for a new album, which is set to be released this fall.
As cited by Consequence of Sound, the group mow composed of Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman, the new New Order album would be the first one without founding member Peter Hook that got their relationship from bad to worse since the breakup of the group in 2007.
Meanwhile, Rolling Stone reported that vocalist Bernard Summer revealed that the new album would be a great way to give back to their fans after gaining a positive reception during one of their shows.
“The shows were being well received and we were enjoying it,” Sumner said.
“It seemed like the logical thing to do.” Ever since Hook parted ways to pursue a solo career, New Order said that his departure became a positive reinforcement for them that gave them a flexibility to write songs for a new album.
“The lines have gotten a bit blurrier than they used to be,” Morris said.
“We’ve become songwriters instead of instrumentalists.” Furthermore, it has been reported by NME that the New Order signed with a new record label, going back to their roots of working with an independent label.
“New Order are delighted to be signing to Mute,” the band said.
“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.”
