Meanwhile, New Order recently released a ‘Blue Monday’-themed t-shirt in support of mental health charity CALM.
The new piece of merchandise is the work of Factory Records graphic designer Peter Saville and based upon the design for the band’s legendary 1983 track.
100 per cent of proceeds from the t-shirt will go to CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), and it’s available to pre-order here until February 17.
New Order said of the shirt: “We are proud to be ambassadors for CALM and honoured to be using ‘Blue Monday’ to help raise awareness for the brilliant work they do to support millions of people struggling with their mental health.”
Last year, New Order’s Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris appeared in Parliament to discuss mental health and suicide prevention on the 42nd anniversary of the death of their Joy Division bandmate Ian Curtis.
Meanwhile, an expanded edition of their 1985 album ‘Low-Life’ is due to be released this Friday (January 27).
The band’s third album will be repackaged and reissued with the collection including LP, 2CD and 2DVD versions, along with a special book.
Also being released are a number of 12 inch singles, including ‘Shellshock’, ‘Sub-Culture’ and ‘The Perfect Kiss’. Those limited edition records are available to order now here.
