New Order have announced the release of a massive box set celebrating their debut album Movement on April 5th. The Movement Definitive Edition box set is a 1LP/2CD/1DVD set that comes packaged in a lift off lid and features a ton of swoonworthy material, much of it previously unreleased.

The box contains: a copy of Movement on vinyl featuring the original Peter Saville-designed sleeve, a copy of Movement on CD, a bonus CD with previously unreleased tracks including the Western Works and Cargo demos, rehearsal versions, and more; a DVD collecting live concert recordings from 1980/81 along with their Granada TV and BBC appearances, plus a hard back book. The boxset will be released April 5th.

The news doesn't stop there:

New Order will individually reissue four of their non-album 12" singles from the Movement era in March:

1. Ceremony version 1 (original version)
2. Ceremony version 2 (re-recorded version)
3. Everythings Gone Green
4. Temptation

All of the singles have been remastered and pressed on heavyweight vinyl. Both Ceremony singles will be released March 8th; Everything's Gone Green follows on March 15th (with the correct tracklisting for "Mesh" and "Cries And Whispers"!); and Temptation wraps up the series on March 23rd.

Movement Definitive Edition (box set) and the 12" singles are available to pre-order now -- each release is available to pre-order individually or as bundle -- Movement Definitive Edition bundle -- which features the box set + all four 12" singles. Check out all the options here.

Today's announcement is FANTASTIC news for New Order fans because this is likely the first in a series of Definitive Editions for (all of? some of?) their iconic albums. Last year Peter Hook revealed he was very interested in releasing collectible New Order box sets for fans:

"My ambition has always been to get all the collectible stuff together in one place, so that you just go to this place and see everything to do with New Order; the album sleeves, the flyers, the tickets, the t-shirts and everything. I'm still holding onto that ambition.

Warners are doing a collector's series of the albums, a box set that will be more like that. I got a wonderful present for my 60th birthday which was Led Zeppelin II, complete with all the flyers and gig posters, a vinyl edition - it was wonderfully done, and I took it and showed it to Warner Bros. and said, "This is how our next reissue should be." You know, really give the fans something to treasure. We're working towards that aim, thank God."

Hooky and New Order settled their legal differences last year, paving the way for a whole lot of excitement for New Order fans. Stay tuned!
