  • Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds Covers Joy Division's “Love Will Tear Us Apart” (Demo)

  • British rock band Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, consisting of Noel Gallagher (lead vocals/guitar), Mike Rowe (keyboards), Russell Pritchard (bass guitar), Chris Sharrock (drums), Gem Archer (guitar) and Jessica Greenfield (backing vocals), released a demo version of their cover of British rock band Joy Division's “Love Will Tear Us Apart” on December 25, 2023.


    The original version of the song was released by Joy Division in June 1980.
    The single was released the month after the band lead singer Ian Curtis' suicide, its lyrics were inspired by Ian Curtis's marital problems and struggles with epilepsy.
    Back in June, Noel Gallagher performed “Love Will Tear Us Apart” with the BBC Concert Orchestra on BBC Radio 2.
    At that time, he said of the song, “We are at the BBC and you can't get out the BBC without doing a cover. When asked me to do this I was like 'I'm afraid I'm all Bob Dylan-ed out... I don't know what to do.'”
  • He continued, “I would play this song, this version of it, at home down the years. When they asked me to do it, I was like 'How can I get away with that?' Because it's such an iconic and, being from Manchester... well, this is going to be tricky. But now I've got my own studio, I went and did a little demo of it and I was like 'You know what? I think I might be able to pull this off.' So we're going to do 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' by the Divs.”
    The track was Bernard Sumner. Ian Curtis, Peter Hook, and Stephen Morris.
