After the release, last year, of the Definitive Edition of their first album, Movement, New Order has now announced a boxset with the Definitive Edition of their second album, Power Corruption & Lies. The limited-edition, which arrives October 2, comes in a box designed by Peter Saville and includes an LP, two CDs, two DVDs, and a book.
The LP / first CD features the album remastered for the first time from the original analog tape masters. The second CD, entitled Extras, contains previously unreleased writing sessions from New Order’s Manchester rehearsal rooms and the 1982 John Peel Session for the BBC. The DVDs include New Order live during 1982 & 83 at The Hacienda and Kilkenny, the 1984 Play at Home Channel 4 TV documentary and other rare live & TV performances. A 48 pages hardback book of rare photos and original text collated by Warren Jackson completes the boxset.
Individual releases of four remastered versions from 12” vinyl singles from the period will also be available with their original covers: Blue Monday, Confusion, Thieves Like Us and Murder.
We hope the definitive version of Low Life comes soon.
