Oh great, because the world is waiting for yet another New Order compilation album.

Well this upcoming collection on Rhino Records is a different in two ways.

Firstly, it's New Order and Joy Division. You know, together. I know, big wow.

Secondly though, we get a new previously unreleased track - Hellbent, from 2005.

This is one of several songs that were reportedly completed for the Waiting For The Sirens' Call LP which fans have been begging to be released. In truth though it's a grower but not a world beater. It is, nonetheless, infinitely better than one track that did inexplicably make that album, and double inexplicably was a single. The one that's officially the worst New Order song of all time.
