This album is dedicated to Tony Wilson, founder of Factory Records, who died of cancer in 2007, and will be released on February 20th 2010 to celebrate what would have been his 60th Birthday.
A portion of the proceeds from album sales will benefit the Salford Foundation Trust's Tony Wilson Awards, established in his memory. The trust benefits children and young people who can demonstrate a special talent or ambition in the arts or creative skills.
Packaging includes rare archival photos of New Order by rockstar photographer Kevin Cummins plus one of the last images of Tony Wilson before he announced his illness, taken by Katja Ruge.
Peter Hook, bassist for New Order & Joy Division, has recorded a sonically enhanced spoken word dedication to Tony Wilson to introduce the record.
Two additional collections of songs will be available as digital albums released in support of this package: The Digital Album & Twelve Versions of Ceremony.
Even after losing Tony, his legacy continues to bring music into people's lives. Since Ceremony will benefit talented young people, we included a Ceremony track on the album performed by children to show an example of those who have the opportunity of music in their lives.
