Next month sees the release of Total, the first compilation to combine the back catalogues of Joy Division and New Order – who shared band members, a record label and a sleeve designer. Peter Saville was a co-founder of Factory Records and credits the label’s unique culture for providing him with a creative freedom on a par with its bands. “I had the opportunity to make the kind of objects I wanted to see in my life,” says Saville, who went on to design the England football strip, art direct adverts for Dior and was creative director of the city of Manchester. Here, he talks us through his favourite designs for Joy Division and New Order sleeves
Where Are You Now? (Fear of Tigers Remix) - Queen of Hearts
Raise Your Weapon (Madeon Extended Remix) - Deadmau5
First Light - The 8th Note & Mr Clark
A particular highlight for me is the StardonE track from their debut EP, which you can pick up on Amazon - four tracks (including “CT”) for $4, all of them featuring that future-pop-meets-space-disco sound.
