Notes:
New Order's second single, released 25 September 1981 as double A side.

The original UK covers are in thick grey carton and have nine different colours, apparently after the band's and management's favourite colours.

US editions have UK covers in various colours plus added stickers, and the UK pressings.

The Portuguese, French and Spanish covers also come in thick grey carton but with blue graphics only

The Italian cover has thin paper with black and white and the New Zealand cover has thin paper with dark blue and light blue.

Australia had imported UK covers and pressings in various colours only.

Designed by Peter Saville (2), inspired by a graphic of a generator by Fortunato Depero from 1927. Producer was Martin Hannett again.

Peaked at #38 in the UK singles charts.

This release is related to a Factory USA 12" (Factus 8), and to a Factory Benelux 12" (FBN 8).

I have a mispressed version with no cover unfortunately. The label says "Everything's Gone Green" on both sides. Any know where this came from?

"Procession" is another radio-friendly track which kept New Order ticking over nicely and racked up another mid-table hit in the UK charts. But it's the flipside which provides the most interest. Though they had started using electronics while recording as Joy Division, this track has a harder, more heavily-processed sound, in retrospect an obvious precursor to their most famous hit "Blue Monday". Sadly "Everything's Gone Green" fades out early on this single; however the full-length version is readily found, on NO's "Substance" compilation among other places.
