New Order

New Order have released the video for song Restless, the first single off their forthcoming album, Music Complete. Directed by Spanish filmmakers NYSU, whose past credits include work with Wild Beasts and Philip Selway of Radiohead, the video centres on a 21st-century revamp of the legend of Excalibur.

The ancient tale’s sword remains, but its medieval theme is threaded through modern-day scenes that King Arthur may not have recognised – from sweaty nightclubs to what VHS film looks like. Hedonism, overindulgence and food fights all make appearances in the video’s utopian world, and underpin the love story at its core.

Commenter reviews on the song itself were fairly mixed when we first posted about it, so do let us know whether the video elevates the track or does little to change your opinion.
Album Music Complete was produced by New Order, with two tracks produced by Chemical Brother Tom Rowlands, and features guest appearances from Iggy Pop, La Roux’s Elly Jackson and Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers. The album is due on 25 September, via Mute.
