Album by New Order includes first cover (6*)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'album' is the definition.
(record album is a kind of album)
'new order includes first cover' is the subsidiary indication.
'new' indicates anagramming the letters.
'includes' indicates putting letters inside.
'first' suggests taking the first letters.
The first letter of 'cover' is 'c'.
'order' is an anagram of 'reord'.
'reord' enclosing 'c' is 'record'.
'by' is the link.
(Other definitions for record that I've seen before include "Register - best listed achievement", "that has been cut", "Written report - best so far!", "put down to the occasion", "Annal", "It provides evidence", "note?", "Note - disc", "Log; disc" and "Highest achievement".)
