New Order have unveiled the first song from their new album.
Then band - featuring Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman - have premiered 'Restless' online, with the track being their first new material to be recorded since bassist Peter Hook left the group in 2007.
The track has been taken from their forthcoming album 'Music Complete' - set to be released on September 25 - which will feature collaborations with The Killers' Brandon Flowers on 'Superheated', La Roux's Elly Jackson on 'Tutti Frutti' and 'People on the High Line' and Iggy Pop on 'Stray Dog'.
Peter left the band eight years ago and has since been replaced by Tom Cunningham on the record, while the LP also marks a return to the group for founding member Gillian Gilbert who took a break in 1998.
Their ninth album will be their first collection of original material since 2013's 'Lost Sirens', which was comprised of recordings which didn't make it onto 2005's 'Waiting for the Sirens' Call'.
