Last September the British record label Mute announced that they had signed 1980s legends New Order. Now the fruits of that partnership have been revealed: New Order are set to release their new album on the label on September 25. Entitled Music Complete, it’s their first studio album in a decade, since 2005’s Waiting For the Siren’s Call. It’s also their first not to feature founding member and bassist Peter Hook, who left the band in 2007, but features the return of fellow founding member and keyboardist/guitarist Gillian Gilbert, who left the band after 2001’s Get Ready.

A press release states that Music Complete finds a balance between New Order’s more guitar-centric recordings and their more electronic-based ones. The full current line-up of the band is Bernard Sumner, Gillian Gilbert, Stephen Morris, Tom Chapman and Phil Cunningham. The band self-produced the album, apart from three tracks“Singularity” and “Unlearn This Hatred” were both produced by Tom Rowlands of The Chemical Brothers and “Superheated” features additional production by Stuart Price. Peter Saville, a longtime collaborator with the band, once again does art direction.

You can check out the album cover below, along with the album’s tracklist. No full songs from the album have been shared yet, but the band have released a 34 second teaser trailer, which you can watch below. And the press release promises that new tour dates will be announced soon.
