Look, we’ve ALL at one time or another wished we were there at the 2017 Manchester International Festival where New Order laid it down with visual artist Liam Gillick, arranger Joe Duddell, and a 12-piece synthesizer ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music in one of the most legendary sets of their already-plenty-legendary career. It’s a feeling we all know!

Luckily, if there’s anything you can say for New Order, it’s that they know what the fans want, which is why they’re bringing that boisterous performance to your record shelves in the form of the new live album ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes... It’s out July 12 through Mute.

Now, I know you’ve got questions (not the least of which is “How the hell am I going to pronounce that title when I ask my local brick-and-mortar record store clerk if it’s in stock?”), so you’ll be happy to hear that I’ve got answers! (Except to that question, sorry.) The record will be available on 3xLP, 2xCD, and digital formats, and the physical editions come with special deluxe booklets. I’m also being told by the voices in my head (and this press email) that the album also features three bonus tracks from their residency, including the first performance of Joy Division’s “Disorder” in 30 years! (“Disorder?” More like “I’m gonna order dis now!)

You can pre-(new)-order ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes.. here, and be sure to check out the just-released live version of the bonafide classic “Sub-Culture” below (where you can also find the album tracklisting). Enjoy your second-hand auditory experience, and enjoy the silence! (Wait, no, that’s not right…)
