Vinyl box from Joy Division in December
A new Joy Division box set of 7″ vinyl discs is set to be released next month, named “+-” (plus minus). The set will feature ten discs, some of which have been released previously and some that have been created for this release. All of the tracks have been remastered by Stephen Morris and Metropolis Studios’ Frank Arkwright, while the box features new artwork from the band’s long-time visual collaborator Peter Saville.
Although Joy Division released two albums in two years, they recorded many other tracks throughout their career that were released on stand-alone singles, most notably “Transmission” and “Love Will Tear Us Apart”. “+-” brings these singles, and more, together in one place.
“+-” will be out on December 6 and is limited to just 5000 copies, with numbers one to 500 coming individually numbered and featuring a piece of art by Saville as well as two exclusive promotional CD’s “+” and “-”. There will also be a digital release via iTunes, while anyone buying the physical edition will be able to download MP3s of the tracks for free.
