New Order will reissue its debut album Movement — originally released in 1981, about 18 months after Ian Curtis’ suicide ended Joy Division — in a “Definitive Edition” boxed set next April, a 4-disc collection that will include the original album on both vinyl and CD as well as a bonus CD filled with previously unreleased demos and a DVD of live appearances.

The band also will reissue four 12-inch singles — “Ceremony (Version 1),” “Ceremony (Version 2),” “Everything’s Gone Green” and “Temptation” — in their original sleeves starting March 8.

The Movement: Definitive Edition boxed set is due out April 5, and can be pre-ordered now via Amazon.co.uk, or directly from the band in bundles that include additional 12-inch singles and a T-shirt.

The first two discs of the boxed set comprise the original Martin Hannett-produced album on both vinyl and CD. The third disc, a CD, includes 18 tracks, most of which are demos, but also a couple rehearsal recordings, an alternate 7-inch mix of “Temptation” and a first mix of “Ceremony.”

And the fourth disc is a DVD stuffed with 35 songs, performed live at venues in New York City, Manchester, London, Minneapolis, Paris and more between 1980 and 1983.

 


The set will come enclosed in a box with a lift-off lid that also will include a new hardback book.

New Order, which has a lone U.S. appearance scheduled for next month, has not said whether this is the beginning of a catalog-wide reissue campaign, but it’s a good bet that’s what’s happening. Hopefully they’ll roll out more smoothly than New Order’s last reissues.
