“A lovely slice of dreamy synth-pop” DIY
“Chiming piano-powered call to arms” THE TIMES
“The exact type of glittery, uptempo, hype-worthy song that would bring a live crowd to their feet” CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“Another example of how timeless this band really is” EXCLAIM![
New Order’s first new music in 5 years was ecstatically received last month when they shared a brand new single, ‘Be a Rebel’.
The 12” and digital bundle features new remixes, including Bernard’s Renegade Mix (the original version of the adidas Spezial ad soundtrack) and Stephen Morris’ T34 Mix, as well as Bernard’s Renegade Instrumental Mix. Further dance floor engineered remixes will follow.
Listen to the ‘Be A Rebel’ [Renegade Spezial Edit]:
‘Be a Rebel’ was originally planned as a release ahead of New Order’s tour this autumn, but with live shows on hold and their dates re-scheduled to 2021, the band felt it important to share new music with fans. “In tough times we wanted to reach out with a new song. We can’t play live for a while, but music is still something we can all share together. We hope you enjoy it… until we meet again.” – Bernard Sumner
With a message to celebrate ourselves and appreciate what we have, even in hard times, ‘Be A Rebel’ is an uplifting, dreamy cut of New Order synth pop. Listen here: https://youtu.be/f6E6ugW7TOo
New Order have recently released the definitive collection of their 1983 studio album Power, Corruption & Lies via Warner Music.
