Electronic, the supergroup consisting of Bernard Sumner (New Order) and Johnny Marr (The Smiths) reunited over the weekend and performed the song “Getting Away With It” (watch below) during the ex-Smiths opener set.
After passing up a perfect opportunity to reunite at the 2013 Coachella Festival the two chose The Transmissions: Live at Jodrell Bank as the reunion venue. Later in the evening New Order frontman Bernard Sumner announced during their headliner set that:
“We’re going to release new material at some point; it’s going to be the next ‘Sgt. Pepper’s.”
We’ll keep that one on our new music radar…
The original 1989 recording of “Getting Away With It” included Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys on backing vocals.
