The album is the first the band have recorded since bass player Peter Hook left in 2007 but will feature the return of keyboard player Gillian Gilbert.

Speaking to NME about the album earlier this year, Bernard Sumner said the group had put their guitars away and returned to a more original New Order sound. “It’s an electronic-sounding album, dance-based but not housey. It’s being mixed by Craig Silvey [Arcade Fire, REM, Nine Inch Nails, Portishead], and we’ve worked with Tom Rowlands from The Chemical brothers on three tracks,” he said.
