Duran Duran have released a new cover of Talking Heads’ Psycho Killer, featuring Victoria De Angelis of Måneskin.

Victoria has teamed up with the new wave legends as part of the band’s upcoming 16th album Danse Macabre, which is due out on October 27 on Tape Modern via BMG.

“It’s such a wild honour to get asked by John Taylor and the guys to play on their album,” she enthuses. “I met John at a party, and we immediately bonded talking about music and bass. I told him Tina Weymouth was my absolute pinnacle of cool, attitude and incredible musicianship all rolled into one, and he told me he also started playing bass inspired by her and she was one of his music idols.

“I then got a call from John months later saying he was working on a cover of Psycho Killer, and he wanted to ask me first about playing on it. It was insane being asked by one of the greatest bass players ever to play one of my favourite songs with Duran Duran. Absolutely insane. I’m so grateful and honoured, it was so much fun recording together with John and he was so sweet to me and encouraged me to express myself and play it my own way. I’ll always remember that day.”

John shares that Victoria is “probably the most important electric bassist out there right now. I met a couple of the guys from Måneskin at a party and they said, ‘You’ve got to meet our bass player.’ She’s such a dynamo! I was like, ‘What inspired you?’ and Vic said, ‘Tina Weymouth.’ So when Psycho Killer made the cut for the album, I thought, ‘I’m gonna ask her if she’d like to have a bass-off!’”
