Republic (album)

From Academic Kids

Template:Album infobox

Republic was New Order's first album after the demise of Factory Records, and their last for eight years.

The album follows on the standard New Order principles of not having anything other than the credits and art inside the CD sleeve, and of having a Peter Saville designed cover.

The album reached Number 1 in the UK, and as of 2004, is New Order's last chart topper.

The band broke up whilst on the tour following this album, and media reports suggest that the pressure of the long North American leg of the tour, an area of the world with lead singer Bernard Sumner is known to not like travelling to, assisted in the bands (temporary) demise. They would reunite in 1998

Republic: The limited run..

A limited-edition version of the Republic album was also released in the United States. Although the tracks are the same as the normal release, the packaging is entirely different. Instead of a jewel case, the CD comes in a folding wallet made of bright orange vinyl with foam inside, giving it the appearance of a floatation device or life jacket. The CD is also redesigned, with no words but a picture of several orange rubber inner tubes against a background of flames, a reference to the cover artwork. The booklet, tucked into a pocket of the vinyl wallet, is the same as the standard version, but made of a plastic waterproof material instead of paper.
