Following the announcement of their first full studio release in a decade, Music Complete, out on 25 September 2015, New Order have announced details of the very special guests on the album: Brandon Flowers, Iggy Pop and Elly Jackson (La Roux) and have released the third in a series of album trailers.
Go to http://po.st/NewOrderYouTube to hear three different sides of what you can expect from the new album.
Brandon Flowers named The Killers after the band in New Order’s video for ‘Crystal’, and has become a good friend of the band. Here on Music Complete he lends his unmistakable vocals on ‘Superheated’, giving the album a fittingly epic closer.
Following an enthralling guest appearance performing ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ at the Tibet House benefit in New York last year, Iggy Pop now applies his unique tones to ‘Stray Dog’, creating a brooding track that blends perfectly with the eclectic array of sounds on Music Complete.
Featuring on ‘Tutti Frutti’ and ‘People On The High Line’ and providing backing vocals on ‘Plastic’, Elly Jackson first supported New Order on their 2014 tour with her band La Roux, starting a mutual appreciation of each other’s work.
In addition to this stellar cast of guests, New Order will be showcasing their new album with live shows in the UK and Europe.
