If you can’t make it to any of their festival slots, there’s no need to miss out. New Order has released a recording of their lauded 2017 performance at Manchester’s Old Granada Studios during the Manchester International Festival. The location had particular meaning to the band and its fans. It was where their old record label owner, the late Manchester music industry legend Tony Wilson, presented iconic television shows, including Joy Division’s first ever TV appearance.
The resultant record, ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So It Goes, features everything from songs not performed live in 30 years to music from New Order’s Top 5 album from 2015. The band was joined by a 12-strong synthesiser ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music. The album is out now on triple coloured vinyl, double CD and digital stream/download.
