New Order sign to Mute Records for new album

on September 02, 2014, 11:55am

New Order have been teasing a new full-length since they reunited three years ago. It looks as though the legendary outfit’s inching closer to a release, as they’ve just announced their signing to Mute Records.

“New Order are delighted to be signing to Mute,” the band said in a press release. “We couldn’t imagine a better place to be than working with Daniel Miller and his team. Mute has a superb roster of artists and a history that complements our own. In many ways joining the label feels like we are coming home, returning to our independent roots.”

Mute — home to artists like Erasure, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Depeche Mode, Swans, Liars, and more — is similarly excited to welcome New Order to its roster. Label head Daniel Miller commented: “This is an exciting new chapter for both Mute and New Order and I feel privileged to be working with artists with such a long, creative and successful history. When the possibility of us working together first came up, I was invited to hear some of the new material and immediately had no doubts whatsoever that Mute would be the right home for New Order. We’ve already had a number of creative conversations, and I am looking towards an exciting future.”
