Singles is a two CD compilation of New Order's 1981–2005 singles, released on 3 October 2005. Unlike the CD version of earlier singles compilation Substance, the B-sides are not included. While Substance aimed to showcase New Order's 12" singles, Singles instead features mostly 7" versions, some of these being quite rare as well as differing from album versions.

Of special note are several early singles that have never appeared on CD in their original form: "Ceremony", "Everything's Gone Green" and "Temptation". Additionally, "Confusion" appears in an edit of the song's "Rough mix" created exclusively for this compilation. One song, "Turn" was released on this album in a new edited form, despite never being a single. Released at the very height of the loudness war prevalent in the record industry, this release is notorious amongst New Order aficionados for its high volume and heavy compression levels.
