New Order's "Elegia" for Ian Curtis Is Now on Vinyl
New Order's tribute to Ian Curtis, "Elegia", was originally released on their 1985 album Low-Life in a truncated form. But now, the full 18-minute version is being released on vinyl, as Dummy reports. The track is out on a 3-track 12" EP via Slow to Speak and available via Dope Jams. The 12" also includes a Peel Session take on "5-8-6" off Power, Corruption & Lies, as well as Movement's "The Him", which was also written for Ian Curtis.
The 18-minute version of "Elegia" was included on the impossibly rare five-disc version of the band's 2002 Retro box set. The widely available version of Retro, however, included the five-minute edit of the song.
