BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982
“Temptation” was British band New Order’s 4th, and their first self-produced single. Released on May 10, 1982 as 7″ and 12″. “Temptation” peaked at # 29 of the UK singles charts.
The vocal track on the original 12″ version features an audible “startled yelp” during the song’s intro. Vocalist Bernard Sumner has since explained that the scream was from him due to bandmates thrusting a snowball down his shirt during recording.
