New Order & Mute's Daniel Miller clink glasses, sign contract...

Mute Records have signed New Order and will release the band's next album. Says label head Daniel Miller:

This is an exciting new chapter for both Mute and New Order and I feel privileged to be working with artists with such a long, creative and successful history. When the possibility of us working together first came up, I was invited to hear some of the new material and immediately had no doubts whatsoever that Mute would be the right home for New Order. We've already had a number of creative conversations, and I am looking towards an exciting future
New Order are now labelmates with Depeche Mode, Erasure, Liars, and more. As for what to expect: in an interview with Consequence of Sound, singer Bernard Sumner has hinted that a James Murphy collaboration could be in their future. (DFA denies it, though.) Stay tuned.

In other news, Bernard Sumner will release an autobiography, titled Chapter And Verse, on September 25 via Transworld. And former bassist Peter Hook will soon be touring North America, playing New Order's Low-Life and Brotherhood in full.

And DFA has already denied the New Order collaboration with NO. Heard about checking the facts?
