New Order unveiled their new album to the UK music industry at a series of playbacks in London on Monday afternoon.
The album, their eighth, and the first since 2001's Get Ready, is called Waiting For The Sirens Call.
It had been rumoured to be a pure dance album, along the lines of 1989's Technique, but in fact mixes dance tracks with rockier songs.
Written in Manchester and recorded in Manchester, Liverpool and London, the record was produced by Stephen Street.
The playback was introduced by Warners MD Korda Marshall, who said the band plan to release three singles from the album: Krafty - one of the more electronic numbers, the title track and the poppy Jetstream Lover, which features Scissor Sisters' Ana Matronic.
Several tracks press all the right classic New Order buttons ie, great bassline, wistful vocals, endearingly appalling lyrics, and the final track of the record sounded like the Stooges.
The first single 'Krafty' is scheduled to be released on March 7th
The album, 'Waiting For The Sirens Call' is scheduled to be released on March 28th.
