New Order could team up with Tinie Tempah for a remake of their classic song 'World In Motion', according to reports - although Dizzee Rascal will not appear on the track.

The recently-reformed Manchester legends first recorded and released the track for the 1990 World Cup and, according to The Sun, were sizing up a potential collaboration with the two rappers as the soundtrack to England's exploits at the European Football Championships this June.

"A couple of years ago New Order and the record label came within 24 hours of doing the song with Dizzee," said a source. "It never happened but it's different this year – New Order are back together and Dizzee's free."

They went on to add:

Tinie's been approached, too, so Dizzee has some competition. There's an idea to get them both on board – it could be massive.

However, Dizzee's representatives have now told NME that the reports are "untrue". Representatives for New Order, meanwhile, were unable to confirm whether they would be re-releasing the track. The band are set to tour the UK in April and May of this year, and will also be one of the headliners for this year's Bestival.
