Baker, who co-wrote seminal New Order tracks such as Confusion and Thieves Like Us, offers an original twist in his latest remix – with backing vocals provided by his wife and former Rockers Revenge bandmate Tina B.
Also announced and available for pre-order today is the Be a Rebel remix double 12” and CD, which bring together all 11 remixes of the track.
Friday, 7 May will also see New Order releasing Education Entertainment Recreation (Live at Alexandra Palace), which takes in their acclaimed 2018 show at the London venue.
The band have also shared details of a huge homecoming show at Manchester’s Heaton Park with Hot Chip and Working Men’s Club on 10 September 2021.
“The connection between ourselves and Manchester has played a pivotal role in who we are as a band,” New Order said in a statement. “We have countless memories from across the city, from our early days starting out, and beyond.”
They added: “We promise to bring a celebration like no other to Heaton Park in 2021, and we can’t wait to see everyone come together for a night we’ll never forget.”
Looking forward to their support slot, Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor said: “We’ve learnt a lot from New Order (including how Bernard likes his tea), and they have made some incredible music, marrying the emotional with the electronic, a synthetic, at times icy beauty with rawness and pop melody, and they’ve certainly influenced us, as well as us sharing some of the same influences that have informed their music, like Chicago House, Detroit Techno, or Italo Disco.”
New Order will also perform their rescheduled their show at London’s O2 in November.
