This is a round-up of the week’s new albums, expanded reissues and/or box sets, appearing each Monday on Slicing Up Eyeballs. All releases due out this Friday unless noted. (Since we missed the last couple weeks’ round-ups, this includes titles that came out in recent weeks.)
Tag: Total: From Joy Division to New Order
This week’s new releases include ‘Ninth,’ the new solo album from Peter Murphy; ‘Remixes 2: 81-11’ from Depeche Mode; the ‘Total: From Joy Division to New Order’ compilation; a 10 CD box set of remastered INXS albums; a disc of Buzzcocks re-recordings; and Duncan Sheik’s compilation of ’80s alternative covers, ‘Covers 80s.’
Just days after news broke of the upcoming compilation ‘Total: From Joy Division to New Order,’ the set’s lone unreleased track — a latter-day New Order outtake called ‘Hellbent’ — has leaked after being played on Irish radio.
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’ — will include a previously unreleased New Order song called ‘Hellbent.’
