New Order Announces Vinyl EP With Full Version of “Elegia”
The recently reformed New Order is planning to release a full, 17-minute version of “Elegia” on a 12" vinyl record. The song, a tribute to their late Joy Division bandmate Ian Curtis, originally appeared on the band’s 1985 album, Low-Life.
While the extended version of “Elegia” was included in the band’s rare 2002 five-disc box set, Retro, Pitchfork reported that Slow to Speak will release a 12” single with the full track, as well as the Peel Sessions versions of “5-8-6” off 1983’s Power, Corruption & Lies and “The Him” (also composed in Curtis’ honor) off 1981’s Movement. Though it seems like the EP is unavailable right now, Pitchfork also said that it will be sold through New York City’s Dope Jams.
In the meantime, listen to the full version of New Order’s “Elegia” below.
