Get Ready is the seventh studio album by the English rock band New Order. Released in August 2001 by London Records, this was the group's first album in eight years, following 1993's Republic.
Peter Hook said of the album's title, "The title of the album is 'Get Ready' so it could mean anything or nothing. I thought it was just nice, New Order, 'Get Ready', 'cos we are, we're getting ready for the next phase of our musical lives both physically and mentally so it's quite a simple thing but it's very pertinent."
The album features a cover art directed by Peter Saville and designed by Howard Wakefield who have also designed covers for New Order and Joy Division albums. The cover model is German actress Nicolette Krebitz.
Keith Strickland, guitarist for the New Wave band The B-52s, was inspired by Get Ready to write the B-52s album Funplex, feeling that if New Order could put out such a strong album at this stage of their career, The B-52s could too. Keith hired Steve Osborne, the producer of Get Ready, to produce Funplex, and it was eventually released in 2008.
