Joy Division’s ‘Still’ Compilation Reissued For 40th Anniversary
Joy Division have announced a 40th anniversary special edition vinyl release of their 1981 compilation, Still, out 11 February 2022.
The release follows vinyl reissues of the groundbreaking debut album Unknown Pleasures, and their classic second and final album, Closer. Still will be a limited edition release with a ruby red sleeve, pressed on crystal clear vinyl available to pre-order exclusively here.
Still is a compilation album first released in 1981 after the death of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis. Their two previous albums had already cemented the Manchester band’s iconic status in music history and Still filled in the gaps. It featured previously unreleased studio material, two non-album tracks – Dead Souls and Glass – and a live recording of Joy Division’s last ever concert, at Birmingham University. The show included the only live performance of Ceremony by the band, who later became New Order with the addition of Gillian Gilbert and released it as a single.
New Order recently returned to live performance with a triumphant hometown show at Manchester’s Heaton Park. They will be back for a show at The O2, London on 6 November.
New Order will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their debut album, Movement, on 13 November by releasing their Taras Shevchenko film, filmed live at the Ukranian National Home, New York City on 18 November 1981, 5 days after the release of Movement. More details of the film, which will be available to watch on YouTube to follow.
A second series of the official Joy Division/New Order hit podcast, Transmissions: The Definitive Story, is also in the works.
