NEW SINGLE MASQUERADE OUT NOW
15 June 2022
Exciting!!! The new BANANARAMA single MASQUERADE is OUT NOW.
'Masquerade' sees the duo reunite with producer Ian Masterson. The track is a pulsing slice of club pop with a hint of Pet Shop Boys in its musical DNA and lyrics that tap into our growing awareness of identity.
"When we were all in lockdown, there were a lot of conversations happening to do with inclusivity, diversity and gender and racial equality," Sara explains. "And that kind of led to this idea of 'masquerade': how you present yourself in different ways depending on the situation, but really, you just want people to live how they want to live. It's a song we're really very proud of."
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.
