New Order Share Classic Performance of “Sunrise” at Haçienda

New Order have shared a live performance of The Haçienda’s ‘Sunrise’ in 1985. Watch the NME performance video below.

The song appeared on the Manchester band’s third studio album, “Low-Life”, which was repackaged and reissued as a special expansion box set on January 27, 2023 (pre-order / pre-save here).

The upcoming collection will include several versions of “Sunrise”, including a “writing session recording” and a raw instrumental mix.

Songs from concerts from the “Low-Life” era in Tokyo, Rotterdam, Toronto and Manchester will also be broadcast live.

This latest performance was part of a Whistle Test session filmed by the BBC at the legendary Haçienda venue. Today (December 8), New Order have posted a video of that performance on their official YouTube channel:

The new reissue of “Low-Life” will come in LP, 2CD and 2DVD format, together with a special book.

Several 12-inch singles will also be released, including “Shellshock,” “Sub-Culture,” and “The Perfect Kiss.” These limited edition discs can be ordered here now.

New Order released in 2020 a special box set of their second dominant album “Power Corruption & Lies”. The 1983 record includes the tracks “Blue Monday”, “Age of Consent” and “Your Silent Face”, and was named NME’s best New Order album of 2018.

Speaking to NME for a special retrospective interview on the reissue, Peter Hook said: “Those were great days. You felt like you were changing the world. Looking back, I think Joy Division and New Order changed the world , culturally and musically.

“Power, Corruption & Lies was our honeymoon period. It’s comforting to realize what we’ve done together. It’s worth it.”

This summer, New Order toured North America with the Pet Shop Boys.

In May, Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris came to Parliament to discuss mental health and suicide prevention, marking the 42nd anniversary of the death of Joy Division leader Ian Curtis.
