Yesterday Bernard Sumner from New Order sat down for an interview with music mag Q which took place only a few hours after the band announced its new label deal with Mute, and just a few hours before being honored with the Inspiration award at the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London.  During the interview Sumner shed a little more insight into the label deal, New Order's forthcoming album, and writing his memoir Chapter & Verse.  Read a few highlights from the interview, plus stream the full interview below, courtesy of Q.

Sumner on signing with Mute:

"We've known Daniel Miller for a long time, off and on...we felt that Mute had similar intentions to Factory Records so it felt like a natural home for us. And with the band having new personnel, a different bass player, and New Order having a new lease on life so to speak...we just felt like it was time for change with the record label as well."

On the new album:

"We've got 8 tracks demoed with vocals, so but they need recording properly with proper drums. We need to do quite a bit of work on them, but we've got songs, that's the hardest bit, until you've got that you can't go anywhere with it...so we've got 8 and we reckon we need another three. We've been working on three songs with Tom Rowlands from the Chemical Brothers and they've turned out very well we've been playing one of those tracks live...it's called "Singularity."  We're using electronic instruments...it's a synth record...but with verses and choruses."

On his autobiography Chapter & Verse, (New Order, Joy Division, and Me) which will be released in the U.K. later this month:

"It was hard work, it was like doing an album, very intense, because it's factual, you have to put a lot of effort into making sure you get facts right that you give an honest rendition of what happened. I'm pleased with the results."
