When Bernard Sumner said he wanted to compose more electronic music for the next New Order album, he wasn’t kidding. Last night, Bernard Sumner and Co. opened their short U.S. tour premiering the new Italo-Disco song inspired “Plastic” (see video above). When New Order toured South America earlier this year, the band debuted “Singularity”. In contrast to “Plastic”, “Singularity” is more classic post-punk song and the first composed without Peter Hook song and the first new track since the Waiting for the Sirens’ Call.
Check out “Singularity” below:
