Late last year, Lohan dropped the news on Instagram, when she posted a surprise pic of herself and the legendary band, captioned, “#DuranDuran @alianalohan recording with some greats!!!”
Duran Duran later confirmed, posting the pic to their own account. It’s a collaboration we never saw coming, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t stoked to see what would come of it.
And today, we finally did. Duran Duran’s new album doesn’t officially drop until Friday, but they posted the whole thing to SoundCloud on Tuesday, giving fans a little preview of Paper Gods. And it turns out the album features a whole lot more famous names than just Lohan.
Duran Duran invited a whole list of awesome artists to collaborate on the album, including Janelle Monáe, Mark Ronson, Kiesza, Nile Rodgers, Mr. Hudson, Jonas Bjerre from Mew and ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, as well as Lohan, of course.
Our favorite track has got to be Lohan’s, though. On “Dancephobia,” a super-high-energy dance track, the actress and singer is featured in a spoken-word verse. Take a listen here.
No word yet on what’s next for Lohan’s music career, but after a lackluster few years for her own music, it’s good to see her owning the scene again with Duran Duran, one of the greatest bands out there.
