So before anyone else is tempted to grasp at NO threads about new songs, keep in mind that ShadowParty are currently rehearsing and about to unleash themselves upon the world. I'm sure you'll agree that it's unlikely this would happen at the same time as NO doing anything substatntially new.
ShadowParty being the band of new New Order members: Tom Chapman and Phil Cunningham along with "Josh Hager and Jeff Friedl from DEVO".

I got that from THIS ARTICLE from 2015, although I'm not seeing the Josh Hager name so much at the moment. As you can see, it also adds:

Quote:
We have collaborators performing on some of our songs, such as Nick McCabe from the Verve (who joined us at SSR), William Cashion from Future Islands, Denise Johnson from ACR/Electronic/Primal Scream and Joe Duddell, who has worked with Elbow, new Order and Jimi Goodwin from Doves, who all add amazing textures to the music


I get the impression that Denise Johnson's contribution(s) are of the "lead vocal" variety, as she did a small festival gig with some of the above musicians a few months ago and she was up front and centre (also the band don't appear to have a specified lead vocalist).

FWIW I had a little twitter chat back in August with Mr Chapman and a lady called Michelle Hussey from BBC radio Manchester. There's definitely a track called Marigold, which at one point was on BBC iplayer/ radio player, but isn't now. Ms Hussey commented "I'm absolutely sure it is something we will be featuring again because they're amazing".
And Mr Chapman said of the timing of the new music "Soon very soon". And now with the tweets below, the time has almost come, it appears.


Nice t shirt (top RHS). Judging by the mention of Mute UK & USA, I think we can guess what label the music is coming out on.


EDIT: Oh yeah, in case this all looks familiar from the forum I did give it a mention in a Charlatans thread (post#8) about 10 months ago.

Ok, Maybe the Morrises and Sumners are doing helpful exercises and stretching and getting limbered up while Tom and Phil are already ready to release terrific stuff.
At least maybe in the future mute might just build them a New Order cruise ship just for NO fans. Each week, 15 different songs each night = 105 songs .And
even though they have written more great songs than anyone in the history of music, they realize there are way more genres that could use some fresh NO type ideas.
What if they write new songs about outer space love? They will surely all be way better than other outer space love songs by other bands
So , Bernard and Stephen must do their stretches, and stay limber

Well, Phil and Tom are having fun while the sumners and morrises are out yachting , but why not work with a more interesting duo, as those 4 songs are nearly awful.

Boy, do I hate all this bollocks. All this dickin' about. It's like the early 90s when it was all Revenge/Electronic/Other Two, Hassie, one-off collaborations etc etc etfuckinc. My feelings were always, Shut the fuck up and make another Technique... And they did. 25 years on.
