"Confusion" is a single released by British group New Order in August 1983 with the catalogue number FAC 93.[note 1] It was the follow-up to their massive club hit "Blue Monday" and is unique for having both Peter Hook and Bernard Sumner playing bass guitars on it. The song is produced by influential New York DJ Arthur Baker. As a result it was recorded in New York, a rarity for the band. Three remixes served as B-sides on the initial 12" release: "Confused Beats", "Confusion Instrumental" and "Confusion Rough Mix".
An edit of the Rough Mix represents the single on the 2005 compilation Singles. A re-recorded "Confusion" as well as the original "Confusion Instrumental" appear on the group's 1987 Substance release. The track reappeared on the 1995 remix collection The Rest of New Order as an acid techno remix by Pump Panel, which was notably used in 1998 as part of the soundtrack for the film Blade. The Pump Panel remix features as samples on the tracks "Play it Louder" by Randy Katana and "Phatt Bass" by Warp Bros and Aquagen.
