DURAN DURAN RELEASE DIGITAL DELUXE VERSION OF FIFTEENTH STUDIO ALBUM FUTURE PAST FEATURING THREE NEW TRACKS
DURAN DURAN release the deluxe version of their fantastic new album FUTURE PAST on TAPE MODERN via BMG. Previously released physically, and now available digitally for the first time, the deluxe offering of FUTURE PAST includes three additional songs: “LAUGHING BOY,” “VELVET NEWTON,” and “INVOCATION”.
Describing the song and focus track, vocalist Simon Le Bon said, “’LAUGHING BOY’ is about a moment of realization when you face the truth that you’ve been squandering your precious time with someone who is not actually very good for your health and well-being.”
Enlisting the help of some of the most exciting names of the last 50 years, with FUTURE PAST the internationally acclaimed, multi-platinum, award-winning pop legends have delivered another incredible genre-spanning piece of work that once again sets them apart from the pack. Working alongside DJ / producer Erol Alkan and pioneering Italian composer / producer Giorgio Moroder, who added his magic to create two instant future classics (“BEAUTIFUL LIES,” “TONIGHT UNITED”), as well as some of the most unexpected and inspiring names in pop – including Swedish hitmaker, Tove Lo on “GIVE IT ALL UP,” “Queen of Drill” Ivorian Doll on “HAMMERHEAD” and Japan’s CHAI on “MORE JOY!”. In addition, Blur’s Graham Coxon co-wrote and lends his guitar to several tracks on the record and David Bowie’s former pianist Mike Garson adds an exquisite sonic layer to album closer “FALLING”. The record, which was recorded across studios in London and LA over lockdown, also features long-time collaborator Mark Ronson who co-wrote and played on ‘WING,’ and was mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent.
FUTURE PAST is available for purchase digitally as well as in a variety of physical formats: standard CD, cassette, a limited edition deluxe hardback book CD featuring three additional tracks, and colored vinyl here. It is available in immersive Sony 360 Reality Audio on Amazon Music HD, TIDAL HiFi, and Deezer HiFi.
