NEW ORDER have signed to DANIEL MILLER's U.K. indie label MUTE RECORDS for their next release. Formed in 1980 out of the ashes of JOY DIVISION, the iconic and influential NEW ORDER have released a total of nine studio albums and two live albums over the past three decades.
MILLER said, “This is an exciting new chapter for both MUTE and NEW ORDER and I feel privileged to be working with artists with such a long, creative and successful history. When the possibility of us working together first came up, I was invited to hear some of the new material and immediately had no doubts whatsoever that MUTE would be the right home for NEW ORDER. We've already had a number of creative conversations, and I am looking towards an exciting future."
Added the band's BERNARD SUMNER, "NEW ORDER are delighted to be signing to MUTE. We couldn't imagine a better place to be than working with DANIEL MILLER and his team. MUTE has a superb roster of artists and a history that complements our own. In many ways, joining the label feels like we are coming home, returning to our independent roots."
