New Order has premiered a new song called “Be a Rebel.”
The track is the first fresh tune from the seminal synthpop group since 2015, when they released their latest album, Music Complete.
“In tough times we wanted to reach out with a new song,” says lead vocalist Bernard Sumner. “We can’t play live for a while, but music is still something we can all share together. We hope you enjoy it… until we meet again.”
You can download “Be a Rebel” now via digital outlets.
New Order does plan to return to the road next year for a North American tour with Pet Shop Boys. The outing was originally scheduled to kick off this month, but was postponed until September 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
