DEFINITIVE EDITION OF NEW ORDER’S LOW LIFE OUT NEXT FRIDAY

Definitive edition of their 1985 studio album Low-Life that includes the original album on 180g vinyl LP and CD – remastered. A second CD of unreleased audio, x2DVDs of live performances from 1984 & 1985, plus a hardback book. 

The vinyl album and CD are both wrapped in the original tracing-paper sleeve – not available since the very first pressing, and the first time ever for the CD

CD 2 contains 12 previously unreleased mixes and alternative versions, including Love Vigilantes and Sub-Culture instrumentals, plus Sooner Than You Think Full Length Unedited.

The two DVDs include rarely seen live performances from Rotterdam Arena (Netherlands), Koseinenkin Hall (Tokyo, Japan) and the International Centre (Toronto, Canada) alongside a BBC session and three tracks performed at the Hacienda in 1985.
