NEW MUSIC: DURAN DURAN | MORE JOY (FEATURING CHAI)

UK Duran Duran is releasing their new album "Future Past" and will be the first in October six years. Today, they’re sharing a new song titled "More Joy," featuring Japanese DIY-pop band CHAI. The album which they have worked on it with producers Erol Alkan and Giorgi Moroder, and they enlisted other collaborators like Tove Lo, Ivorian Doll, Mark Ronson, David Bowie’s former pianist Mike Garson, and Blur’s Graham Coxon, who co-wrote and played guitar on several songs including the lead single “Invisible." “The song ‘MORE JOY!’ was born out of a crazy jam with Duran Duran, Graham Coxon and Erol Alkan,” keyboardist Nick Rhodes says. “It was such an unusual piece we weren’t quite sure if it would fit in at first. It reminded me of one of those retro Japanese video games, which I always found quite uplifting. We came up with the chant ‘more joy’ early on, which became the key to the rest of the track. We all agreed that it would sound really great with Japanese female voices on it, and that’s when Simon had the inspired idea to ask CHAI if they would possibly collaborate with us. To our joy, they agreed, and the result most certainly brought incredible new energy to the song. They are so special!”
