Released on June 6, the album contains five Joy Division tracks and 13 from New Order and boasts a sleeve designed by former Factory Records art director Peter Saville.
Singer-guitarist Bernard Sumner said (via Digital Spy), "I'm glad people still talk about Joy Division and New Order, there's still a sense of self-discovery when they find out about both bands."
He continued, "One of my friends brought his daughter round -- she's 14, and she had her iPod on. And I said to her, 'What are you listening to?' And she said, 'It's this group called Joy Division.' And I had to smile a little bit."
Bassist Peter Hook added, "It is strange seeing the two bands together on one CD. Nice for me, because I can see the evolution, the way the music changed over the years. I am very proud of both, hopefully this could turn a new generation of people on to both!"
