LISTEN: New Order Debuts 'Be A Rebel'


New Order has premiered “Be a Rebel,” its first new song in five years.

“In tough times we wanted to reach out with a new song,” explained frontman Bernard Sumner, in a release. “We can’t play live for a while, but music is still something we can all share together. We hope you enjoy it.”

In the track’s chorus, Sumner sings: “Take a look at yourself / You may not be the same as everyone else / You’re just different, that’s OK / We all follow our own way / And if you find that they won’t listen / Then they’ve got nothing to say / So don’t get mad and don’t feel sad / Be a rebel.”

New Order has not shared new material since 2015’s Music Complete, the group’s 10th studio album. 

Their tour with Pet Shop Boys was bumped to next year due to COVID-19. They are scheduled to kick it off on Sept. 18, 2021 in Toronto and will stop in Vancouver on Oct. 7, 2021.
