Listen to New Order’s First New Song in 5 Years, ‘Be a Rebel’

    New Order have shared a new song titled ‘Be a Rebel’. It marks the group’s first new music since the release of their 2015 album Music Complete. Listen to it below.

    After teasing the track yesterday (September 7) on social media, the group premiered ‘Be a Rebel’ on BBC Radio 2’s Zoe Ball Breakfast Show this morning. In addition to the new single, the band have also restored their 1987 singles compilation Substance to streaming services after a long absence. Next month, they’re set to release the “definitive edition” of Power, Corruption & Lies, reissuing the classic 1983 LP in a five-disc, multi-format box set which will include 13 previously unreleased songs.

    This time next year, New Order are slated to co-headline a 12-date North American “Unity Tour” with Pet Shot Boys, after the dates were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
