New Order’s ‘Power, Corruption & Lies’ to receive ‘definitive’ 5-disc box set reissue

Rhino Records this fall will release what’s being billed as the “definitive edition” of New Order’s Power, Corruption & Lies, reissuing the 1983 album in a five-disc, multi-format box set that will include 13 previously unreleased tracks from the group’s writing sessions and BBC appearances.

The Power, Corruption & Lies: Definitive Edition box set, featuring a 180-gram vinyl LP, two CDs, two DVDs and a book, is scheduled to be released Oct. 2 — and can be pre-ordered now.

That same day, four of New Order’s 12-inch singles from 1983-84 that didn’t appear on the album — “Blue Monday,” “Confusion,” “Thieves Like Us” and “Murder” — will be reissued separately.

The Power, Corruption & Lies box set will include the album, remastered for the first time from the original analog tapes, on both CD and vinyl. The second CD, labeled Extras, includes previously unreleased versions of the album’s songs from the writing sessions for the record and John Peel session outtakes.

The DVDs include a bevy of live performances from concerts in 1982 and 1983, as well as TV appearances and the “Play At Home” documentary made for Channel 4 in 1984. The set, featuring new design by Peter Saville, also will include a 48-page hardback book collecting rare photographs and original text.

Here’s the full tracklist for the box set and the separate 12-inch single releases.

  1. Excited about all the unreleased material. Wish they would exclude the vinyl (lower the price) and include all of the singles tracks within the box on CD. Not cheap but the box/book were well done for Movement and expect the same here.

    Interesting that the BBC sessions are included here yet the ’81 sessions were not included with the Movement box.

    In terms of the 12″ singles tracks being on the 2008/9 2 CD reissues, ‘Confused Beats’ and ‘Confusion (Rough Mix)’ from the Confusion 12″ were left out for this album’s 2 CD reissue.

  2. Oh wow, this looks amazing. Pricey, sure, but sometimes you gotta splurge. Can’t wait to watch those live dvds.

  3. Neil Carver

    The definitive edition of this was bought by me in 1985 on cassette and played religiously for many years until it died at some point in the early ’90s.

  4. Not cassette for me, but yeah. The definitive edition was the original album release. Long may it live.

    Sigh. College. I want my 80s back.

  5. Scott Stalcup

    Flurry of calls between Hooky’s solicitors and the rest of New Order’s RE: royalties in 3… 2… 1…

  6. They could make a shit ton more if they reunited for a proper tour. Love this album, my favorite tied with Low Life.
