New Order Announce Upcoming Album Slated for a Fall Release
New Order have officially announced that they will release their first album since the departure of founding bassist Peter Hook in 2007 and the return of keyboardist Gillian Gilbert, who last appeared on 2001’s ‘Get Ready.’ The album is expected to land sometime in the fall of 2015 via Mute Records.
The English artists have revealed that they've already recorded two songs for their upcoming LP, ‘Plastic’ and ‘Restless,’ the latter of which will feature the Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands.
New Order released their last album, ‘Lost Sirens,’ in 2013 -- however, it featured material recorded at the same time as 2005’s ‘Waiting for the Sirens’ Call.’
In an interview with Rolling Stone, frontman Bernard Sumner spoke about some of the bands that have influenced New Order and the bands they have influenced in return.
"I don't think you can say that anyone is doing what New Order does but musicians are all influenced by their record collections,” he explained. “Our earliest influences were Bowie and Iggy Pop and Kraftwerk and songwriters like Neil Young before that. Instead of changing things in a negative way, [the bands influenced by New Order] are giving it new life."
