Bananarama has revealed that the first single taken from their forthcoming studio album, In Stereo, will be the disco stomper Stuff Like That. Available everywhere now, the single proves testament to why Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward have been one of pop’s most influential and revered groups. Laced in their trademark DNA, Stuff Like That is the perfect taster of what to expect on Love In Stereo, their upcoming 11th studio album.
“The song was inspired by the sort of track we used to love dancing to at schools!”
For Stuff Like That the band have also reunited with their long-time music video director Andy Morahan who worked with them on the seminal videos for I Heard A Rumour, I Can’t Help It, Love In The First Degree, I Want You Back and Nathan Jones.
“It was fate bumping into Andy on the very day we were having a meeting to discuss who we would make the video with. Having worked with him so many times before he feels like part of the family and we had such a great time filming. It was the most chilled fun video we’ve ever made”.
Listen to Stuff Like That – BELOW:
This spring they’re going to take an evening with Bananarama on tour for one time only, to small, intimate venues and will incorporate Q&As with the audience. The band will perform the hits as well as material from the new album. The London shows sold out in a day.
With zero complacency and an ever-increasing touring schedule across the world since their last full studio album Viva in 2009 (the band have since released numerous EPs), the duo’s creativity, vigour and passion have never faltered. 2017 provided a moment to take a step back from recording the LP, to bring the hugely successful one-off Original Line-up Tour to the stage before returning to complete the final tracks for In Stereo.
Having succeeded in their mission – these shows were only ever intended as an exciting diversion – it is back to the day job with all guns blazing, all choruses hitting the target. The record was mostly made in the Wapping studios of Bananarama’s most enduring musical ally, producer Ian Masterson
The worldwide audience for the band is as captive as ever. As a two-piece, the most enduring version of Bananarama, the one that lasted thirty years, they will take their show to the worldwide stage next year, including Europe, USA, Australia and the Far East’. ‘It’s the best job in the world’ says Sara.
The album a reflection of just that – the next stage in this incredible adventure that has lasted 30 years. Welcome back IN STEREO, Bananarama.
