New Order has been busy touring since releasing 2013’s Lost Sirens,but they evidently had enough time to work on new music: The English band announced Monday that a new album titled Music Complete will arrive in the fall.
They made the announcement on their various social media accounts and included a musical preview of the album, which will be the band’s first without founding bassist Peter Hook. Earlier this year, lead vocalist Bernard Sumner told NME that the group would go back to their musical roots for the record. “It’s an electronic-sounding album, dance-based but not housey,” he said. “It’s being mixed by Craig Silvey [Arcade Fire, REM, Nine Inch Nails, Portishead], and we’ve worked with Tom Rowlands from The Chemical brothers on three tracks.”
Music Complete arrives Sept. 25, but fans can pre-order the album (along with special editions) over at New Order’s website. Listen to the teaser below.
