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 - fastest time", "Written account of proceedings", "Facts known about a person - may be criminal", "Set down in permanent form", "Set down in writing", "Best or worst performance", "See 21", "Archives, register", "Person's conduct to date" and "Best known performance in sport".)
