Watch a Very Tight New Order Perform “Singularity” on ‘Colbert’


Last year, New Order released Music Complete, the band’s first album in more than a decade, and it was, against all odds, really good. That record’s “Singularity” was easily a stand-out track, and last night Bernard Sumner and his fellow members of the Order brought it to The Late Show‘s stage. The performance comes nearly a week after the band’s sold-out Radio City Music Hall show in New York, and the band is running like a well-oiled machine.

The group also recently announced the “Singularity Project,” a web-based collection of essays, art, and music by artists and fans who have been impacted by New Order’s output.

Watch the video of the band’s performance below. Let’s just take the time to appreciate the continued success and tightness of New Order, a band borne of tragedy. This take on “Singularity” is especially snappy, with at least a minute cut from its total running time.

New Order are currently on tour in support of the album.
