New Order Will Release Complete 18-Minute Version Of “Elegia” | Music News

Elegia”, the song dedicated to the late Ian Curtis - which can be found in an edited version on “Low-Life” (Factory, 1985) by New Order - will finally see the light in its original form, lasting nearly 18 minutes. The label Slow To Speak will bring the song out on a 12” record, which will also include a version of the classic “5-8-6”, rescued from one of the band’s 'Peel Sessions', and “The Him”, taken from “Movement” (Factory, 1981), which was also written in memory of the deceased Joy Division singer. Until now, the extended version of “Elegia” had only been available as part of a five-album box set, out in a very limited edition, called “Retro” (London, 2002). Below these lines, we leave you with “Elegia” in all of its glory, for your pleasure and enjoyment.
