Brythoniad Male Voice Choir cover New Order's Blue Monday for Festival No. 6 - watch

The 60-strong Welsh choir give their own take on the 1983 classic

It's possibly one of the most remixed tracks in music history, but now the Brythoniad Male Voice Choir have recorded their own novel take on New Order's classic 'Blue Monday' - watch it above.

The 60-strong Welsh male choir formed in 1964 in Blaenau Ffestiniog in Gwynedd, Wales. They recorded the track for the new Festival No. 6, which launched this year and will see the whole village of Portmeirion turned into a festival site. New Order, Primal Scream, Richard Hawley and Jessie Ware are all set to headline.

Earlier this year, New Order dedicated their set at Benicassim festival in Spain to the late singer Ian Curtis.

New Order bassist Peter Hook is set to release his memoirs detailing his time in Joy Division this October. The book, Unknown Pleasures – Inside Joy Division will recount the band's journey from their formation and early days to frontman Ian Curtis' suicide.

Hook published his first book How Not To Run A Club, an account of his time as the co-owner of Manchester's Hacienda nightclub in 2009.
