'BE MUSIC' artwork

New Order are set to release an album of Factory Records productions on 17th February.

The album is titled ‘New Order Presents Be Music’ after the alias Be Music they started using in 1981 to name any production work by its four members - Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert.

The compilation will feature tracks the band remixed between 1982 and 1985 as well as more recent remixes for The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess and industrial rock band Factory Floor.

Of the new album New Order frontman Bernard Sumner said: “Producing was a really important sideline. It’s OK doing it because although all the groups are skint, you learn a lot and you're helping somebody”.

All the tracks have been remastered and will be available on vinyl and CD. Bonus tracks on the CD box-set will feature a track by electronic band Section 25 produced by Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis.
