Duran Duran’s Medazzaland vinyl is a 45RPM pressing

Coming in October

The first official vinyl release of Duran Duran’s 1997 album Medazzaland will be pressed on vinyl cut at 45RPM, SDE can reveal.

This fact has been confirmed by sticker on the album artwork. All things being equal, 45RPM should offer better quality sound, although of course we need a good mastering in the first place.

The other thing to clear up is that there is no black vinyl edition of Medazzaland. The 2LP set is only available pressed on ‘limited edition’ neon pink vinyl. Just how limited this double vinyl set will be is not exactly clear right now, but SDE would hazard a guess at perhaps four or five thousand.

Medazzaland is also being reissued on CD. Since the album wasn’t issued at all in the UK, back in the day, like the vinyl it’s not technically a reissue for those in Britain.

Both formats will be released on 14 October 2022. More info on the original SDE post, but you can see pre-order links and track listing, below.
