New Order are planning to release another EP before the end of the year. Earlier this year, the band released, Lost Sirens, a collection of left over songs from their 2005 album, Waiting for the Sirens Call, it was the bands final album before going on hiatus and final with original bassist Peter Hook. Now, speaking to NME, keyboardist Gillian Gilbert said,"We're waiting on Bernard's lyrics. But it's been sunny this week, so he can't possibly write when it's sunny, but we want to do things now. We don't want to be like the old New Order and keep everyone waiting for years, we want to be the new New Order. We've been writing in short bursts, so we'll just work on four songs at a time instead of waiting another two years to finish an album."
