New Order have announced 'Low-Life Definitive Edition'
A five (2CD/2DVD/1LP) piece boxset celebrating Low-Life, New Order's beloved third album will be released in January. Like the previous definitive editions for Movement and Power, Corruption, and Lies, the Low-Life Definitive Edition includes a remastered edition of the album on CD and vinyl along with previously unreleased material and vintage live recordings.
Though the official tracklisting hasn't been announced, they've announced that the set includes the original album pressed on vinyl with original tracing paper sleeve; CD 1 is a remastered edition of the album and CD2 collects unreleased material such as demos, rough mixes, etc; the two DVDs are live performances from 1984 and 1985. Additionally a 48 page hardback book with photos and a new interview with New Order is included with the box.
New Order will also reissue three singles from the Low-Life era: "The Perfect Kiss," "Sub-Culture," and "Shellshock." These three singles will be released individually, though there are options to bundle together all the singles and/or bundle the singles with the Low-Life Definitive Edition. Note that New Order's official store is stocking an exclusive edition of "The Perfect Kiss" pressed on crystal clear vinyl as well as copies of "The Perfect Kiss" on standard black vinyl, but the other two singles will only be released on black vinyl.
Low-Life Definitive Edition and the singles arrive on January 7th and are available to pre-order now. Head here to view pre-order options.
