Watch Peter Hook & The Light Cover New Order’s “The Perfect Kiss” [Video]


While there’s been no shortage of virtual performances and DJ sets during COVID-19 lockdown, we want to point your attention to Peter Hook & The Light’s spot-on cover of New Order’s 1985 classic “The Perfect Kiss” which debuted today.

Hook was a member of Machester bands New Order and Joy Division. While he parted ways with New Order almost a decade ago due to ongoing differences, the venerable bassist has covered his former bands’ songs in the past both live and on record.

That said, this version finds Hooky and crew nailing their take on the dance-rock classic. You might even say it’s a perfect version of “The Perfect Kiss.”
