Robert Smith has compiled a mixtape for the new site
New Order have launched a new archival website called Singularity: The Influence of New Order.
The website documents their musical influences through tributes, cover songs and specially curated mixtapes besides more personal memorabilia.
“New Order occupy a singular space in the history of modern music,” says the homepage. “Their influence on other creatives, including musicians, writers, visual artists and photographers, is near unparalleled. Inspired by their lasting impact, Singularity is a collection of personal contributions from a wide range of creatives showcasing how, when, where and why this band not only defined an era, but continue to do so. Explore Singularity: The Influence of New Order.”
Among the confirmed content for the website so far is a mixtape curated by The Cure‘s Robert Smith, Cold Cave’s cover of “Your Silent Face“, Chromatics’ cover of “Ceremony” and Hot Chip‘s remix of “Tutti Frutti”.
