NEW ALBUM MASQUERADE ON VINYL, CASSETTE & CD
29 April 2022
2022 sees legendary pop band Bananarama celebrate 40 sensational years of releasing music, chalking up an astonishing 30 chart hits and 30 million record sales. To mark this momentous occasion the band will release brand new album MASQUERADE.
Sara & Keren reunite with producer Ian Masterson, with whom they also worked on 2019's IN STEREO – their highest-charting album since the late '80s – and 2009's VIVA, home to the thumping club hit Love Comes.
The result is a tremendously entertaining electro-dance album that sounds both fresh and quintessentially Bananarama.
MASQUERADE is released on 22nd July in a limited edition run of clear blue and clear red vinyl as well as clear purple cassette, Digipack CD and digital formats, and is available for pre-order now.
Signed copies and bundles are available on the official store.
40 years after they released their debut single AIE a Mwana, Dallin and Woodward's friendship still underpins everything that Bananarama do and above all, makes it fun. "From the age of 18 or 19, to be able to travel the world and write and perform music, it really has been incredible," Dallin says. "Yes, there's a lot of hard work involved and certain things we'd rather not have to do, but we have achieved so much and we’ve had some hilarious moments along the way. And they never seem to stop!" Woodward says their band members always know when they have arrived at the airport "because they can hear the laughter coming".
And long may it continue: as MASQUERADE shows, Bananarama's creative flame is burning brighter than ever.
