Description

    Limited edition 40th anniversary version of the band’s second and final studio album, pressed on 180g crystal clear vinyl.

    Originally released in July 1980 on Factory Records, the album reached number 6 in the UK Charts. In the same year, the album was voted number 1 in NME’s 1980 Albums of the Year poll.

    Closer was recorded in March 1980 at Britannia Row Studios in Islington, London. It was produced by the highly praised Martin Hannett whose distinctive production style utilised unorthodox sound recording and technology.

    Joy Division will be re-releasing a 40th anniversary edition of sophomore album 'Closer'. The release follows last year's reissue of the ground-breaking debut album 'Unknown Pleasures,' and will be pressed on crystal clear vinyl. 

    In addition to the LP release, non-album singles 'Transmission,' 'Atmosphere' and 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' will be reissued with 2020 remastered audio. Since the demise of Factory records, these singles have never been repressed or reissued before and are cut on 180g vinyl, featuring the original artwork on heavyweight board. 'Transmission' will feature an embossed sleeve.

    18th May 2020 also marks the 40th anniversary of Ian Curtis' passing.
