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 already shared the album’s first single, “Restless,” which is also the album’s opening track and also shared its King Arthur-referencing video. The song will be released as a single on October 9 and previously they announced details of the “Restless” remixes and shared Agoria’s remix of the song. Now they’ve shared a remix of the song from RAC, who has worked with Radiohead, Lana Del Rey, Robyn, and others. You can stream it below.

Also 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.

The “Restless” remix package will also include remixes by xxxy, Agoria, and Andrew Weatherall, as well as an extended 12-inch mix of the song. A 12-inch green vinyl will be released that includes the extended 12-inch mix and the Agoria and Andrew Weatherall remixes. It will come with a download code for all the remixes.

Music Complete will also be available as 8-piece deluxe vinyl collection that includes the album plus extended versions of all 11 tracks on colored vinyl.

“Restless” doesn’t feature any of the album’s high profile guest vocalists: Brandon Flowers, Iggy Pop, and La Roux’s Elly Jackson. Instead Bernard Sumner takes lead vocals on a song that’s seems to be about always wanting more in our over-stimulated modern world.
