The series begins with a new video for the album’s final track, ‘I Remember Nothing’, directed by Icelandic directors Helgi & Hörður.

The iconic album has also been reissued on red vinyl, featuring the original Peter Saville artwork, accompanied by a capsule collection at East London shop Goodhood.

According to the band, “while the album’s black sleeve has become one of the most iconic designs in popular music history, the original design was supposed to be white-with-black accents.”

Unknown Pleasures limited vinyl edition is out now.
