Joy Division’s iconic final album, Closer, is getting a vinyl issue to celebrate its 40th anniversary. In addition, non-album singles “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, “Transmission”, and “Atmosphere” will get 12″ releases.
The Closer reissue will be pressed on clear vinyl and is set for release July 17th via Rhino Records. The singles will release on the same day and will be repressed on 180-gram vinyl in sleeves that preserve the original single artwork.
This marks the first time the songs have been repressed since the band’s label, Factory Records, shutdown in 1992. Each will feature its original b-side: “Transmission” b/w “Novelty”, “Love Will Tear Us Apart” b/w “These Days”, and “Atmosphere” b/w “She’s Lost Control.”
Pre-order all the reissues as a bundle for $64.98 or individually via the New Order website. Check out the artwork and tracklisting below.
