In other news, the band recently shared three new remixes of their September 2020 single ‘Be A Rebel’.

Drummer Stephen Morris told NME at the time of the song’s original release that stylistically the track was “kind of carrying on from ‘Music Complete’. It’s a very dance-y song.” He also confirmed that the release was a one-off, but added: “We thought we’d start with one and then see how it goes.”
