In other New Order news, last month the Manchester band released their new live album and concert film Education Entertainment Recreation (Live at Alexandra Palace).
The recording of their 2018 show at London’s Alexandra Palace – their only performance that year – spans two hours and 20 minutes of their classics, cuts from their latest album ‘Music Complete’, and renditions of seminal Joy Division numbers.
Elsewhere, Pet Shop Boys released a new orchestral song called ‘Cricket Wife’ in May, which landed alongside the arrival of their ‘My Beautiful Launderette’ EP on streaming services for the first time.
‘Cricket Wife’ is one side of a two-track single that was shared as part of the band’s Annually 2021, this year’s edition of their yearly annual release. The other side of the single takes the form of a lockdown version of their classic hit ‘West End Girls’.
