As we excitedly mentioned yesterday, today you can download Bernard Sumner’s new track featuring Hot Chip and Hot City for free at the Converse UK site.
“I Didn’t Know What Love Was” surprisingly — or expectedly, depending on your point of view — kicks all kinds of ass:
All the talk about Barney this week has me seriously jonesing for some New Order. If you are as well, may I humbly recommend New Order – 316. The 2-DVD set has a ’98 set from the Reading Festival… you can watch that at your own risk.
Worth the price alone is the first disc featuring one of New Order’s first US appearances, a November 1981 show at the Ukrainian National Home in New York City. Just check out “Ceremony” and you’ll be sold:
God bless Barney. Peter Hook, not so much.
