New Order has announced an upcoming reissue of their 1985 album Low Life will be arriving in January next year, along with a bounty of 12" singles and rarities not previously released by the New Wave icons’.
The collection will unearth 12 previously unreleased mixes and alternative versions of tracks from the album, including Love Vigilantes and Sub-Culture instrumentals, plus Sooner Than You Think (Full Length Unedited) feature in the expanded edition of the band’s third album, along with two DVDs of rarely seen live performances. Pre-order, here.
The two DVDs include rarely-seen live performances from Rotterdam Arena (Netherlands), Koseinenkin Hall (Tokyo, Japan), and the International Centre (Toronto, Canada) alongside a BBC session and three tracks performed at the famous Hacienda in 1985.
The definitive edition of New Order’s Low-Life includes the original album on 180g vinyl LP and CD, remastered. The collection includes a hardcover book designed by Peter Saville – famed art director of the era who created many iconic album covers for Factory Records artists, including New Order and Joy Division – and featuring rare photos and a new interview with the band. The vinyl album and CD are both wrapped in the original tracing-paper sleeve – not available since the very first pressing. Check out the bundle options and pre-order, here.
