Unknown Pleasures is the debut studio album by Joy Division, originally released on 15 June 1979 by Factory Records. The album was recorded and mixed over three successive weekends at Stockport’s Strawberry Studios in April 1979, and was produced by Martin Hannett, who brought a number of unconventional production techniques to the table and into the group’s sound.
The cover artwork was designed by artist Peter Saville, using a data plot of signals from a radio pulsar. It is the only Joy Division album released during lead singer Ian Curtis’s lifetime.
