New Order & Peter Saville Release ‘Blue Monday’ 2024 Charity T-Shirt
New Order and Peter Saville have collaborated with mental health charity CALM to release a new Blue Monday T-shirt. The band, artist and charity first came together last year on a successful T-shirt based on the band’s classic 1983 track.

The T-shirts – which feature the lyric “How does it feel?” from the track – are available to buy now for £25, with £10 from each sale going to CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).
New Order commented in a statement, “Starting a conversation with somebody could be the most important conversation that person ever has. It could be life-changing. So with ‘how does it feel’ we felt, as CALM ambassadors, we had the perfect lyric and message to get out there on the 2024 edition of the CALM Blue Monday t-shirts that Peter Saville has so beautifully designed. And knowing that all the money raised will help make sure CALM are there for even more people who are struggling makes it even more powerful.”
Campaign Against Living Miserably CEO Simon Gunning added: “Blue Monday is a track that transcends generations and one I’ve always loved – with the opening line ‘How does it feel’ resonating with me and so many people. The track and the meaning behind perfectly aligns with the work we do at CALM to help shred the stigma of suicide and offering support to those struggling. Mental health affects us all and we know that one in five will have suicidal thoughts in their lifetime.
“We’re so proud to work with Peter Saville and New Order – the t-shirts are a brilliantly creative idea that will reach people with the clear message that no matter the day or how you’re feeling – help is there.”
