"Everything's Gone Green"

"Everything's Gone Green" is a single released by British group New Order in December 1981. It was only released in Belgium on Factory's Benelux sub-label and bears the catalogue number FBNL 8.

It is supposedly the first song by the group to contain computer-generated sounds. The song had already been released in an edited form, as a B-side on the single "Procession" in September of the same year.

Two original songs, "Cries and Whispers" and "Mesh" are included as B-sides. The track names of the B-sides are correctly identified on the label, but are in the wrong order on the sleeve. This led to their being misidentified on subsequent releases; for example, the track identified as "Mesh" on the CD version of the Substance compilation is actually "Cries and Whispers". All three tracks appear together on the cassette version of Substance.

All tracks were produced by Martin Hannett, this being the last work he did with New Order.

Both "Everything's Gone Green" and "Mesh" also appear on the 1981-1982 EP, along with the tracks from the "Temptation" 12". The EP was released in 1982. The cover artwork was designed by Martha Ladly for which she won a design award.

All three songs on this single have been remastered and appear on the 2008 Collector's Edition of the 1981 album Movement.

    • Boss: Let me guess: You don't like it here.
    • Ryan: No! It's not here I don't like, it's more like what we do.
    • Boss: And what is it we do, Ryan?
    • Ryan: Well, basically we push electrons around with a stick.
