Meanwhile, New Order recently released a Blue Monday-themed T-shirt in support of CALM, a mental health charity.
The new product is the work of Factory Records graphic designer Peter Saville, based on the design of the band’s legendary 1983 track.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of the T-shirt will go to CALM (Campaign against a miserable Life), and it can be issued here until February 17.
New Order said of the T-shirt: “We are proud to be CALM ambassadors and proud to use Blue Monday to raise awareness of the brilliant work they do to support millions of people struggling with their mental health.”
Last year, Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris of New Order appeared in Parliament to discuss mental health and suicide prevention on the 42nd anniversary of the death of their Joy Division bandmate Ian Curtis.
Meanwhile, an extended edition of their 1985 album “Low-Life” is due out this Friday (January 27).
The band’s third album will be repackaged and reissued along with the compilation, including LP, 2CD and 2DVD versions, as well as a special book.
A number of 12-inch singles are also being released, including “Shellshock”, “Sub-Culture” and “The Perfect Kiss”. These limited edition records are available to order right now here.
