Cover design by Peter Saville who was inspired by the packing for Bold washing powder; the track is a reworked version of the one included on the album Technique; the b-side MTO is pretty good too.
The late John Denver successfully sued New Order for copyright infringement over the song Run 2. His lawyers claimed it was rather too close for comfort to 'Leaving On A Jet Plane'. This is presumably the main reason why the song has never been reissued on any subsequent New Order release.
