The English rock band New Order released a new single this week, titled “Restless.”

New Order Debuts New Single “Restless”

New Order debuted the single on BBC Radio 2 Tuesday before uploading the track to YouTube.

Even though there still the New Order touch, with vintage synths and inspired lyrics, “Restless” sounds way more bankable and mainstream than the band’s previous releases. Looks like the band’s finally escaping from Joy Division’s shadow, which was pervading its music with a very underground, dark and filthy touch – a feeling their precedent album Lost Sirens had already hinted at.

New Order’s new album, Music Complete, will hit the stores on Sept. 25. This is the first album recorded without their bassist Peter Hook, after Hook left the band in 2013. “New Order are unified in their hatred of me,” he told NME in 2013 after leaving the band.

Bernard Sumner, lead singer of the band, told NME that Music Complete will be “an electronic-sounding album, dance-based but not housey.” Tom Rowlands of the Chemical Brothers worked on the album’s production.

New Order has also released a few trailers for the album, including audio and video snippets. Watch the last one below:
