Lavish new New Order singles vinyl box on its way

On September 9, New Order will reissue their career-spanning Singles compilation as a remastered four-LP 180 gram vinyl box set or double CD set priced at $70 for the former and $20 for the latter. Tell me now how should I feel. From Rhino:

A decade after its initial release, SINGLES has been refined to become a greatly improved representation of the band’s history. The renowned Frank Arkwright (The Smiths’ Complete) at Abbey Road has remastered the collection with all audio sourced from high quality transfers.

In addition, SINGLES adds “I’ll Stay With You” from 2013’s Lost Sirens album and replaces the correct single edits or mixes for the tracks “Nineteen63,” “Run 2,” “Bizarre Love Triangle,” “True Faith,” “Spooky,” “Confusion” and “The Perfect Kiss.” The result is a considerable upgrade on the previous version of the album.

Video above, “True Faith” (1987). Below, “Ceremony” (1981), the song that bridged the end of Joy Division after Ian Curtis’s death and the birth of New Order.
