Peel Sessions is an extended play (EP) by English electronic band New Order, released in 1990. It consists of tracks recorded for the John Peel Show on BBC Radio 1 in January 1981 and June 1982. The EP was released on Strange Fruit Records in the UK and Castle Communications in the US.

The EP features early versions of some of New Order’s most popular songs, including “Temptation”, “The Village”, and “Blue Monday”. The tracks are all stripped-down and raw, with a more experimental edge than the band’s later recordings.

The EP was reissued in 2000 as The John Peel Sessions, with two additional tracks:
