Joy Division to re-release classic single

Will 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' be a hit a third time?

Joy Division’s classic final single 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' is to be-released next month.

The track, out September 24, is being reissued ahead of the release of 'Control', the movie biopic about the life of the band's singer Ian Curtis, which is out on October 5.

'Love Will Tear Us Apart' has been a Top 20 hit twice before, in June 1980, a month after Curtis' suicide, and June 1995.
