Joy Division to record new material

As you all know shooting for the Ian Curtis biopic Control starts next year. But here is more. Director Anton Corbijn has asked the survivors of the legendary Manchester four-piece to contribute songs to the film. Peter Hook:

"We were asked to do the soundtrack to the film which I thought was a fucking great idea, for Joy Division to do the music for a Joy Division film because we've never really done a soundtrack before.

Like the way the 'Atmosphere' video was filmed, he wants to write videos that appear in the film."
