Video of the Moment #1994: New Order

By on Saturday, 23rd January 2016 at 6:00 pm

While TGTF Towers in Washington, DC, gets buried in a historic blizzard, it’s important to keep spirits and heart rate up. Good thing, then, that New Order have chosen this afternoon to release their latest video, for single ‘Tutti Frutti’. Not to be confused with the Little Richard classic, it’s a grower of a track: I hated it when I first heard it, but you can’t deny the glittering synths and Bernard Sumner’s sufficiently emotional (for him) but largely detached lyrics, while the driving rhythm thumps on. The promo video is a great extension of the single, with its message clear: age is just a number, folks. Is the main character supposed to be a nod to Tony Wilson? Maybe…

Their most recent album, 2015’s ‘Music Complete’, which was the band’s first new album in 10 years (though still without Peter Hook), was released last October. You can read our review of the LP here. Past coverage of New Order on TGTF is right this way.
