New Order, circa 1989

A new 18-song best-of compilation covering the “most important tracks” by Joy Division and and its successor New Order — titled Total: From Joy Division to New Order and spanning the years 1979 through 2005 — is set to include a previously unreleased New Order song called “Hellbent.”

Due out June 6 in the U.K. on Rhino Records, the compilation is the first to combine Joy Division material with post-Ian Curtis New Order tracks on the same commercially available release — although a 2001 promo-only best-of called 20 Years of New Order carries a tracklist that’s somewhat similar to the new collection.

The new Total disc opens with five of Joy Division’s best-known tracks (“Transmission,” “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” “Isolation,” “She’s Lost Control” and “Atmosphere”) before segueing into a chronological run of a dozen New Order singles plus the new song, of which little is known at this point (see full tracklist below).

The material on the album is mastered by Frank Arkwright and the cover art is designed by former Factory Records art director Peter Saville and Studio Parris Wakefield, which has posted an account of the project written by creative director Howard Wakefield.
