The Chemical Brothers, Bobbie Gillespie (Primal Scream) and the world's most overrated grunge rocker, Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) will all be appearing on New Order's forthcoming album, with Corgan 'temporarily' filling in for keyboardist Gillian Gilbert (who's nursing a sick child). "Billy has been a New Order fan for years and used to come and see us every time we played Chicago when he was about 17," Bernard Sumner told NME. "We've known him since then and I just rang him up to see if he wanted to do this track (Turn My Way). It's gone on from there, I'm a big fan of the Pumpkins." The band's new album Get Ready is scheduled for release in August when they'll also be touring the UK. . .
