New Order Release ‘Be A Rebel’ Music Video
New Order have released the video for their latest single, Be A Rebel, created by the Spanish Director NYSU.
The band released the Renegade Spezial Edit of Be A Rebel in September, which was the result of Bernard Sumner’s collaboration on a capsule range for Adidas Spezial. This mix is an extended edit of the Adidas _nwrdrSPZL promotional video soundtrack, whose accompanying film features dancer Rentaro Nakaaki of the English National Ballet.
Speaking about the video, New Order said, “We’d previously worked with NYSU from Madrid when they created a memorable video for us to go with Restless, and their imagination and creativity with film really struck a chord with the band. For Be A Rebel, it has been great to team up with NYSU again, and their inspirational treatment and unique aesthetic compliments the track with a very original vision.”
Be A Rebel, focuses on the idea that we need to celebrate ourselves and appreciate what we have, even in hard times, was originally planned as a release ahead of New Order’s tour this autumn, but with live shows on hold and their dates re-scheduled to 2021, the band felt it important to share new music with fans.
“In tough times we wanted to reach out with a new song. We can’t play live for a while, but music is still something we can all share together. We hope you enjoy it… until we meet again.” – Bernard Sumner
Be A Rebel is available now digitally and on 12” with new remixes, plus a digital bundle. Remixes featured on the single include Bernard’s Renegade Mix (the original version of the Adidas Spezial ad soundtrack) and Stephen Morris’ T34 Mix, as well as Bernard’s Renegade Instrumental Mix. Further dance floor engineered remixes will follow.
