  • Duran Duran Shares New Song “MORE JOY!” featuring CHAI

  • British new wave band Duran Duran, consisting of Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor, will release their upcoming 15th studio album “FUTURE PAST” on October 22, 2021 for the first time in six years.
    From the album, the band has shared the second single “MORE JOY!”, following “INVISIBLE”.
    This time, the band recruited Japanese rock band CHAI for the song.
    The track was written by Simon Le Bon, Roger Taylor, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Graham Coxon.
    “The song “MORE JOY!” was born out of a crazy jam with Duran Duran, Graham Coxon and Erol Alkan,” Nick Rhodes said of the song. “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, and that 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 an incredible new energy to the song. They are so special!”

    Simon Le Bon added, “Nick suggested some girlish voices on 'MORE JOY!' and I knew exactly where to find them — CHAI, post- modern, all-girl Japanese punk band, whose energy and pure sense of fun might actually blow your ears off! We are honoured to have them sprinkle their pink neon magic spikey dust onto our song. Now it’s 'MORE JOY!; (Feat. CHAI). CHAI — beloved forever!”
    CHAI said, “We are full of joy! When Duran Duran asked us to join their new song, we listened to it and thought “this is lively, rock, cool and fun,” and we danced! We added our voices to their rock sound, making it even more ‘MORE JOY’! Because we are MORE JOY. Thank you Duran Duran!”
    The band appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform “INVISIBLE” from the album.
