Peter Hook & The Light - Atmosphere (Joy Division)

Peter Hook, bass player of Joy Division and New Order, is on the verge of releasing an EP of reworked Joy Division classics. Peter Hook & The Light, as the band is called, have just debuted two videos today. The first is a gorgeous version of Joy Division's brilliant Atmosphere - featuring Rowetta (formerly of The Happy Mondays) on vocals. The other track is a formerly, unfinished Joy Division song called Pictures In My Mind with Hooky on the mic.

Both tracks, along with new versions of JD's Insight and New Dawn Fades, will round out the EP entitled 1102 / 2011 due out on Hacienda Records on May 9th.  Please enjoy.

UPDATE:  Peter Hook and The Light have also released a full-length album, which features a live performance of the entire Unknown Pleasures album plus six other songs, including Love Will Tear Us Apart.  Available on CD and Vinyl!
