On September 25 New Order are releasing Music Complete, their first studio album in a decade, first for their new label Mute, and first not to feature founding member Peter Hook (but it sees the return of founding member Gillian Gilbert). They have now shared a new song from the album, “Plastic.” The very club-ready track was mixed by Richard X and can be streamed below. The fantastic near 7-minute song is pretty much all you could ask for from a New Order dance track in 2015.

This follows the album’s first single, “Restless,” which is also the album’s opening track and has gotten a King Arthur-referencing video and been remixed by Agoria and RAC. The album also features several high profile guest vocalists: Brandon Flowers, Iggy Pop, and La Roux’s Elly Jackson.

As we previously reported, on the day the album is released, September 25, New Order will be “Live in Conversation at the 10th Annual Reeperbahn Festival” in which they will participate in a Q&A with Arthur Baker. The event will live stream at 2 PM EST. You can suggest questions for New Order via Facebook and Twitter by using the hashtag #AskNewOrder. And on October 6 New Order will play at 6 Music Live at Maida Vale, closing out a weeklong 6 Music event. It will be live streamed as well.

Check out “Plastic” below, followed by the band’s upcoming European tour dates. Also be sure to pick up Under the Radar’s current print issue to read our interview with New Order’s Bernard Sumner about Music Complete.
