Duran Duran / Japanese Rio reissue offers exclusive bonus tracks


SDE reported last week that Duran Duran‘s Rio was being reissued. For diehard fans this seemed a case of ‘nothing to see here’ since the track listing simply repeated the 2009 deluxe edition, but it has become apparent in the last few days that the 2015 Japanese edition of this reissue DOES appear have some exclusive bonus tracks!

According to listings on both HMV and CDJapan, at the end of the second disc, the Japanese edition adds the following bonus tracks:

  • • My Own Way (instrumental version)
  • • Hold Back The Rain (Alternate Remix)

Both were digital-only bonus tracks back in 2009, but as far as SDE is aware, these have never been issued on CD before. We should add the proviso that this isn’t officially confirmed by the label at this stage, but two retailers in Japan do list them.

This Japanese edition of the Rio deluxe is reissued on 1 July 2015.
