New Order have hinted at a future collaboration with former LCD Soundsystem man James Murphy.

Bernard Sumner and Tom Chapman from the iconic Manchester band suggested in a new interview that the group could be set to work with the producer in the near future.

Speaking to Consequence Of Sound, Sumner responded to a question asking if they would consider working with Murphy. He said: "I can't talk about any of that just yet, but there is news, we're in the process."

Meanwhile, Sumner recently confirmed details of his forthcoming autobiography. Chapter And Verse (New Order, Joy Division And Me) will be published by Transworld on September 25. It had been announced in June 2013 that Sumner had signed a deal to publish his memoirs.

The accompanying press release states that the book will offer "a vivid and illuminating" account of Sumner's childhood in Salford, before detailing his thoughts on Joy Division, New Order and the Hacienda nightclub. It continues: "Sometimes moving, often hilarious and occasionally completely out of control, this is a tale populated by some of the most colourful and creative characters in music history."

The book is Sumner's first. New Order's estranged former bassist Peter Hook has published two memoirs. 2009's How Not To Run A Nightclub is Hook's account of the Hacienda, while 2013's Unknown Pleasures documents his time in Joy Division. He has stated he is wary of writing about New Order because "there's so much bitterness. You don't want it to become a bitchfest."
