Duran Duran is releasing a new Halloween-themed album called ‘Danse Macabre.’
The thirteen track record features new songs, covers and reworked versions from the band’s back catalogue.
Keyboardist Nick Rhodes explained, “The idea was born out of a show we played in Las Vegas on 31 Oct 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 humor was simply irresistible.”
Bassist John Taylor claims the record will “offer an interesting insight into the personality of the band.”
Covers on the album include Billie Eilish’s ‘Bury A Friend’, Siouxsie And The Banshee’s ‘Spellbound’, ‘Paint It Black’ by The Rolling Stones, ‘Ghost Town’ by The Specials, and Talking Heads’ ‘Psycho Killer.’
The album will be out on October 27.
