New Order's Bernard Sumner Recovering From COVID-19

Posted by

New Order frontman Bernard Sumner has revealed he is recovering from coronavirus.

The singer made an appearance on Minnesota radio station The Current, primarily to discuss the band’s new single ‘Be A Rebel’.

Out now, the song is New Order’s first piece of new music since their 2015 album ‘Music Complete’.

Chatting to the host, Bernard Sumner revealed he was recovering from coronavirus, and still had several symptoms.

“I was one of the lucky ones, I didn’t get it too bad,” he said. I felt I had a little bit of a temperature, but not much. I had it for four days, it went away for four days, and then it came back for four days. When it came back, it was more severe, but still not too bad. I just felt extreme fatigue, like a really bad hangover. Then it went away, and I’m OK.”

“But I’ve heard horror stories over here about it. A couple of people know people who’ve died from it … It seems like Russian roulette. Like, you can get light symptoms, like me, or it can kill you. It’s crazy.”

‘Be A Rebel’ is out now.
