Duran Duran – “Last Night In The City” (Feat. Kiesza) (Stereogum Premiere)
Duran Duran’s upcoming 14th album, Paper Gods, is filled to the brim with featured players. So far, we’ve heard cuts with Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers (“Pressure Off“) and Mr Hudson (the title track), and the list of collaborators also includes Lindsay Lohan (!), John Frusciante, and Jonas Bjerre. The veteran English rock band also worked with Canadian singer Kiesza — probably best known for “Hideaway,” off her debut album Sound Of A Woman — on a track called “Last Night In The City.” It’s an anthemic, disco-inspired track with Kiesza standing in the diva role, dueting and trading off on vocals with Simon Le Bon. Listen below.
And here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the recording process:
