What could happen if New order (Bernard Sumner, guitar and vocals, Phil Cunningam, guitar, Stephen Morris, drums and synthesizers) met Alex James from Blur plus Jake Evans? An unusual partnership called Bad lieutenant! Two generations are matched togheter: the post punk and ’80 electronic dance represent the New Order’s background, the ’90 and brit pop melodies represent the Alex Jame’s. The result is a new album “Never cry another tear” that will come out on 5th October.
Now is available a first single on the web site : http://www.badlieutenant.net/ You have just to register into the mailing list and you can download “Sink or Swim“. The single is melodic and sweet song a little bit far away from the New Order’s attitude and more close to acoustic approach. A sign of the album? Bernard has told that the new sound follow the influences of the moment, coming from the partnerships. But he promises that New Order’s essence never will be lost.
