New Order’s ‘Music Complete’ Will Feature Brandon Flowers, Iggy Pop + La Roux
Last month, New Order announced they would return with Music Complete, their first album boasting all-new music in a decade. Now, we’ve learned the upcoming LP will feature contributions from the Killers’ Brandon Flowers, Iggy Pop and La Roux’s Elly Jackson.
Flowers -- who covered New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle” with frontman Bernard Sumner earlier this year -- will appear on Music Complete’s closing track, “Superheated.” Iggy Pop is featured on “Stray Dog” and Jackson lends her vocals to “Tutti Frutti,” “People on the High Line” and “Plastic.” Take a look at the complete track list here.
Music Complete is due out Sept. 25 via Mute Records. It serves as a follow-up to 2013’s Lost Sirens, which in turn compiled songs recorded during the band’s sessions for their 2005 full-length, Sirens. The forthcoming album will mark New Order’s first with original member Gillian Gilbert since 2001’s Get Ready and their first without bassist Peter Hook, who parted ways with the English outfit back in 2007.
Sumner has previously described the band's latest LP as “an electronic-sounding album, dance-based but not housey” as well as “old-fashioned New Order.” You can get a sense of what that sound will entail by listening to the album teaser below:
