UPDATE: New Order has revealed the new song is titled "Singularity," not "Drop The Guitar."
New Order spent a good part of 2013 writing new material and as Bernard Sumner revealed in an interview prior to the Tibet House gig in March, the band has 14 "song ideas" and seven of them include Sumner's vocals. To prove the point, New Order debuted a new song titled "Singularity" during their set at Lollapalooza Chile on March 30th, and they performed the song again on April 1st at Lollapalooza Argentina.
New Order is planning to release new material in the future, however the hangup at this point is how they'll release it. According to Sumner, there's a debate within the band whether to release the new material as a series of EPs or as a full length album. Regardless, it's highly likely something new from the band will be released later this year in one form or another, perhaps even in time to coincide with their mini-tour of North America. Dates for the tour are posted below along with fan-filmed video of "Singularity" captured at both of New Order's Lollapalooza gigs.
