13 May 2020, 14:18 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Joy Division are reissuing their Closer album on clear vinyl to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

Next Monday (18 May), it will be 40 years since Joy Division vocalist Ian Curtis died, and in July, it'll be 40 years since the band released their second album Closer.

To mark the anniversary, Joy Division have announced that they'll be reissuing the album that features their track "Isolation" on limited edition clear vinyl.

Closer was recorded in March 1980 at Britannia Row Studios in Islington, London with producer Martin Hannett.

The reissue will also be available as a bundle which will include non-album singles "Transmission", "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and "Atmosphere", which haven't been repressed or reissued before.

Joy Division's Closer reissue will be released 17 July, and is available to pre-order now.
