NEWS: New Order return with uplifting new single ‘Be A Rebel’

New Order have released their first new track since 2015’s album, Music Complete.

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. With a message to celebrate ourselves and appreciate what we have, even in hard times, ‘Be A Rebel’ is an uplifting cut of New Order synth pop. Listen below.

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

New Order will also release the definitive collection of their 1983 studio album Power, Corruption & Lies via Warner Music on 2 October 2020. The box set will be accompanied by individual releases of the four 12” vinyl singles from 1983/1984 that didn’t appear on the original album, beginning with the best-selling 12” of all time, ‘Blue Monday’, followed by ‘Confusion’, ‘Thieves Like Us’ and ‘Murder’.

  1. The production sounds dated, lazy and unexciting. Fortunately, I love the chorus. It needs a good remix to push it into a great New Order song, for me.

  2. I differ slightly, I like the sound and the bright synths, with the chorus it’s quite Electronic, but some of the lyrics in the verses are a bit throwaway. Nice to hear them right now though.
