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.

If you mean this shadowparty, then that ain't Tom & Phil's thing. Although confusingly they do mention NO as an influence in their little bio.

Anyway Tom & Phil's band have their own twitter now, and a festival slot booked at Dot To Dot.


*EDIT1* also Chappers tweet listing collaborators and mentioning album:


*EDIT2*: A long interview with Nick Mccabe of The Verve HERE from last August. Scroll down a bit and you will find:
Quote:
You recently played a show with Pete, Martin Blunt from The Charlatans and Denise Johnson at Kendal Calling. How did that come about and will there be more shows and maybe even a record in the future?

We've been talking about doing stuff for ages. Me, Si, and Pete met up at Jodrell Bank because it's a midpoint for us geographically now...Then we bumped into a guy ... who said he'd been talking to Denise (Johnson) that afternoon. I had another chance meeting with Denise when I was working on the Shadow Party record. It's the two new guys from New Order and Devo, Tom Chapman, Josh Hager and various other people.


Quote:
Tell me about the Shadow Party record? How did you become involved in that?

It's a social media thing really. I got chatting to a couple of those guys through Facebook and they invited me to go down and meet them. Which I did for coffee one day. It was the first time I'd met them face to face and we've been friends ever since. It just so happened they were making a record with a lot of different people and asked me if I'd like to be involved. Steve Perry from Journey is on it alongside loads of other bizarre and interesting people. I'm part of a cast of thousands! It's an ever revolving door. I've done seven tracks with them now. I've played so much on the record I didn't actually realise how much came out of it.


Steve Perry from Journey?!? Eek

Joe Duddell on Facebook:

Quote:
Keep your eye on this band - Shadowparty - new venture from members of New Order & Devo. I wrote the string arrangements for their debut album which is out on Mute Records later this year.

“ShadowParty are a band united by a fairly unusual circumstance - each member is a latter-day addition to a huge band – but here they’ve combined as synthpop’s answer to The Avengers.

The nucleus of the group formed when Josh Hager and Tom Chapman met in Boston, Massachusetts. Josh is a former member of The Rentals and currently playing guitar and keyboards in Devo. Tom Chapman is the former bass player of Bad Lieutenant who followed frontman Bernard Sumner to New Order in 2011 when the band reunited for a series of charity gigs. Completing the group are Phil Cunningham, founder member of Marion and New Order’s guitarist since 2002, and drummer Jeff Friedl, who plays for Devo.

Now they’ve completed an album that nods to those groups but exists in its own right entirely, a synth-pop album with guitars and strings, and guests including the incomparable vocalist Denise Johnson (Primal Scream, A Certain Ratio) and The Verve’s revered guitarist Nick McCabe”


I'd like to thank ShadowParty for the backhanders they're slipping me each time I remind y'all of their existence. I'm up to a bag of Fruit Salads and a couple of Blackjacks (oh look Amazon actually sell these as a mixed 1 kilo bag!).

Oh look, it's me replying to myself...

"Celebrate" got it's first radio play this morning on BBC 6 Muisc.
Go to 1hr,43min,33sec HERE

The vocals are - I think - by Johnny Marr's drummer Jack Mitchell. I suspect this may be a radio edit as it's only two and a half minutes long, and the intro is very short.
The 17 second clip they teased yesterday (below) doesn't seem to appear quite like that.



I guess this is the album artwork and title:
In Devotion they found order. See what they did there?
Anyone else reminded of Get Ready by the white lines? Oh how I miss Concorde; getting regular planes just isn't the same.



**EDIT**
Ah ok, here's the (slightly) longer version with the above sound clip at the beginning. I think I shall describe this as "jaunty".

Sorry - rarely notice posts on the other boards.

Pretty good song.
Kind of reminds me of mid-90s U2.

Perhaps that "In devotion they found order" thing was misleading.
Looks like the album is just called Shadow Party, and the Concorde image is nowhere to be seen.

Now listed on Mutebank HERE and HERE with a track listing and blurb.
It seems Denise Johnson is on six of the tracks including the one we've heard - Celebrate. I guess she's in the chorus but it ain't obvious. I hope she'll be a bit more obvious elsewhere. Also hope the album may have a bit more experimentation to it than the single. The opening seconds of Celebrate had me thinking it might be quite edgy indie.
