NEW ORDER CELEBRATE THEIR SPECTACULAR RETURN WITH THE LAVISH AND ULTRA-STYLISH VISUALS FOR ‘BE A REBEL’
‘Be a Rebel’ has been hailed as a spectacular return for New Order and they have now released the suitably stunning video for the single. Spanish director NYSU depicts a couple in turmoil, using typically lavish and ultra-stylish visuals.
New Order said about the video:
“We’d previously worked with NYSU from Madrid when they created a memorable video for us to go with ‘Restless’, and their imagination and creativity with film really struck a chord with the band. For ‘Be a Rebel’, it has been great to team up with NYSU again, and their inspirational treatment and unique aesthetic compliments the track with a very original vision.”
‘Be a Rebel’ was originally planned as a release ahead of New Order’s tour this autumn, but with live shows on hold and their dates re-scheduled to 2021, the band felt it important to share new music with fans. “In tough times we wanted to reach out with a new song. We can’t play live for a while, but music is still something we can all share together. We hope you enjoy it… until we meet again.” – Bernard Sumner
With a message to celebrate ourselves and appreciate what we have, even in hard times, ‘Be A Rebel’ is an uplifting, dreamy cut of New Order synth-pop.
