Ana Matronic: She's Lost Control

New Order has a new record coming out, and it is called "Waiting for the Sirens' Call." It features Scissor Sister Ana Matronic, one of the most Overt people alive. Embracing Overt newcomers is Advanced. Here's a little more from an article on something called ArriveNet:

Rejecting the obvious has always been New Order's technique. In their 28-year career, they've changed the face of pop music on more than one occasion. As Joy Division, they ripped up rock's rule book by making music that was heavy and subtle, glacial, yet full of lament. "Love Will Tear Us Apart" has just been chosen as one of The Brits 25-best songs ever written. Then, as New Order, they were light years ahead of the dance scene with the world's best-ever-selling 12" single "Blue Monday," before bringing Manchester to the masses with the platinum-selling album "Technique." As an aside, they made the only cool football anthem ever made, "World In Motion," which went to Number One, as well as having hits with various side projects such as Electronic, Monaco and The Other Two.
Having a number-one football anthem is definitely Advanced. As most of you know, embracing sports is one of the hallmarks of Advancement. I haven't listened to a ton of New Order in my life, but I'm pretty sure they are Advanced. Going from "She's Lost Control" (when they were in Joy Division) to a football anthem is pretty good.
