About this item
‘Singles’ charts New Order’s finest moments, ranging from their 1981 debut ‘Ceremony’ through to the influential classic ‘Blue Monday’ and other career highlights including ‘Confusion’, ‘True Faith’, ‘Regret’ and ‘Crystal’ plus the chart-topping football anthem ‘World in Motion’.
A decade after its initial release, ‘Singles’ has been refined to become a greatly improved representation of the band’s history. The renowned Frank Arkwright (The Smiths’ ‘Complete’) at Abbey Road has remastered the collection with all audio sourced from high quality transfers.
In addition, ‘Singles’ adds ‘I’ll Stay With You’ from 2013’s ‘Lost Sirens’ album and replaces the correct single edits or mixes for the tracks ‘Nineteen63’, ‘Run 2’, ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’, ‘True Faith’, ‘Spooky’, ‘Confusion’ and ‘The Perfect Kiss’. The result is a considerable upgrade on the previous version of the album.
Andy says: This is the most complete New Order singles comp, and unique in that it features their often overlooked 7 inch edits. The first half is, naturally, peerless, and features tracks either not on albums at all or significantly different versions. In more recent times, albums have sagged, but New Order always had an ear for a great pop single.
