Five-disc package • Unreleased outtakes • Peter Saville designed box set
New Order‘s second album, Power Corruption & Lies will be reissued as a ‘definitive edition box set in October.
The 1983 album has been remastered from the original tape (for the first time, apparently) and features on both CD and vinyl in the new box set.
An additional CD called ‘Extras’ features 17 tracks, including outtakes, rough mixes and writing session recordings of songs from the album as well as non-album singles ‘Blue Monday’, ‘Thieves Like Us’ and ‘Murder’. 13 of the tracks on this disc are previously unreleased.
Two DVDs complete this five-disc package. The first captures New Order live during 1982 and 1983 at The Hacienda and Kilkenny, along with other various ad hoc live tracks from the era. The second DVD includes the 1984 Play at Home Channel 4 TV documentary and other rare live and TV performances.
The discs come in this Peter Saville-designed box set with a 48-page hardback book of rare photos and original text collated by Warren Jackson.
