Duran Durans nya album ”Danse Macabre” är ute nu

av Livets Goda

Idag släpper Duran Duran det nya albumet ”Danse Macabre” (Tape Modern/BMG) – ett soundtrack till deras ultimata Halloween-fest. På tretton spår väcker bandet liv i ljusa melodier ur mörkret, väver samman nya låtar, gör tematiska tolkningar och nyskapade versioner av deras klassiker. Skivan innehåller också nyskrivet material och bandets egna tolkningar av låtar från artister som bland andra Billie Eilish, Talking Head, Rolling Stones och Siouxsie And The Banshees. Medverkar gör även Nile Rodgers, Victoria de Angelis (Måneskin), Mr Hudson, Andy Taylor och tidigare nämnda Warren Cuccurullo.


Keyboardisten Nick Rhodes berättar:

“The song ‘Danse Macabre’ celebrates the joy and madness of Halloween. It is the title track of our album, which gathers together an unusual mix of cover versions, reworked Duran Duran songs and several new compositions. The idea was born out of a show we played in Las Vegas on October 31st, 2022. We had decided to seize the moment to create a unique, special event…the temptation of using glorious gothic visuals set to a dark soundtrack of horror and humour was simply irresistible.

That evening inspired us to explore further and to make an album, using Halloween as the key theme. The record metamorphosed through a pure, organic process, and not only was it made faster than anything since our debut album, it has also resulted in something none of us could have ever predicted. Emotion, mood, style and attitude have always been at the heart of Duran Duran’s DNA, we search for light in the darkness and darkness in the light, and I feel we have somehow managed to capture the essence of all of that in this project.”

Simon Le Bon vidareutvecklar: “It’s about a crazy Halloween party. It’s supposed to be fun!”

John Taylor säger: “After all these years, Danse Macabre offers an interesting insight into the personality of the band. The music packs a real punch.”

Roger Taylor lägger till: “I hope you take a journey with us through the darker side of our inspirations into where we’re at in 2023. Maybe, you’ll leave with a deeper understanding of how Duran Duran got to this moment in time.”

“Danse Macabre” är en musikalisk upplevelse som inte bara hyllar bandets eget arv, utan också utforskar nya musikaliska vägar och samarbeten. Det är ett album som kommer att förgylla Halloween-firandet och ge lyssnarna en djupare inblick i bandets konstnärliga vision.
