New Order’s “Blue Monday” for a Gray Monday

Feb 27th, 2012 in Music

New Order helped meld electronic music with rock back in the early 80s’.  What began in the shattering music of Joy Division evolved and was first convincingly introduced by New Order with their seminal album, Power, Corruption & Lies,  along with the release of their song Blue Monday, each in 1983.  The latter has been rightfully remixed and covered for 29 years since.  In honor of the band’s recent re-grouping, Mojo recently featured the band and album on its cover and compiled covers of the songs from the album, along with Blue Monday and some bonus songs.  Check out the official video for the band’s original version followed by an inventive cover/remix by Norwegian ambient-techno maestro, Biosphere.   And after, check out Fujiya & Miyagi’s fine job on Your Silent Face and our fave Destroyer’s gripping cover of Leave Me Alone.
