(the rest of) New Order or The Rest of New Order is a remix album by New Order released in August 1995 by Qwest/London Records.

Overview[edit]

New Order had been on hiatus as of late 1993 following the turbulent recording and touring of the successful Republic album. The individual members had returned to the side projects that had occupied them during the group's previous hiatus that lasted 1989 to 1992. Republic had been the first album that the group had released for London Records, and with the group announcing little intention of working together the label went ahead compiling The Best of New Order. This venture had proven popular, and sold very well in the competitive Christmas market. It neatly collected most of the band's hits into one package. The hits album was promoted by two singles, remixes of "True Faith" and "1963"; these too proved to be popular. Clearly there was still a market for New Order.

(the rest of) New Order followed half-a-year later, this time the compilers brought together a selection of older remixes alongside new specially-commissioned remixes. The remixes of "Blue Monday", "Confusion", "Touched by the Hand of God", "Bizarre Love Triangle", "Age of Consent", "Temptation" and "Everything's Gone Green" were all new radical reinterpretations. The four singles from Republic are represented with remixes that had previously appeared as B-sides. The oldest mix included was Shep Pettibone's take on "True Faith" from 1987.

Release[edit]

The compilation was released on Compact Disc, cassette and double LP. Each version has a different track listing. Cassette editions include an additional mix of "Temptation", while limited editions of the CD and cassette came with an additional bonus disc/cassette of "Blue Monday" remixes. The album reached #5[2] on the UK Albums Chart as well as #41[3] on the Swedish albums chart. To promote the album, "Blue Monday" was once again re-released. The single was backed with remixes that appear on the bonus disc of the limited edition CD. The version of "Blue Monday" released was the Hardfloor Mix, dubbed "Blue Monday-95", and reached #17[2] in the UK, No. 54 in Germany, and #29[4] in Ireland.

At the time of the release, the compact disc version was the longest compact disc released, clocking in at 80:02 with the pregap included. Without the pregap, the compact disc would clock in at 80:00, still at the time longer than any other compact disc.[citation needed] This record was surpassed in 1998.[citation needed]

The unusual figure on the cover is a pink version of the blue stylised question mark featured on the cover of The Best of New Order. Sometimes in chart books, this album is listed as ? (The Rest of) New Order.
