ザ・キラーズ 今年のクリスマス・シングル“Dirt Sledding”

The Killers 今年のクリスマス・シングル“Dirt Sledding”が解禁。これで10年連続リリースとなる。Don't Shoot Me Santa(2007年)/I Feel It In My Bones(2012年)に続き、Ryan Pardey扮する凶悪なサンタが登場、記念すべき10作目にふさわしく、The Killersのクリスマス・シングル史上歴史的和解を果たす。これもまたクリスマスの奇跡という感じだが、同時にこれでひと区切りという気配も...。

11月28日追記
例年より早く配信開始、Ryan Pardeyに加えRichard Dreyfussの参加も明らかに。

The Killers - Dirt Sledding (feat. Ryan Pardey & Richard Dreyfuss)
https://itunes.apple.com/jp/album/dirt-sledding-feat.-ryan-pardey/id1059898723


1. A Great Big Sled(2006年)
プロデューサーAlan Moulderの奥方でもあるCurveのToni Hallidayをフィーチャーしたジングル・ロック。リリース時、Brandonは「仕事に追われ、大人になるにつれて楽しむことや、優しさを忘れてしまいがち。Last ChristmasやHappy Christmas(War Is Over)といった、クリスマスの名曲を聴いて、クリスマスには子供の頃の楽しさや優しさを思い起こしてもらいたい。」とコメントしている。

2.Don't Shoot Me Santa(2007年)
アーシーなロック・バラッドから軽やかで可愛らしいコーラスを挿み、Killersらしいドラマティックなサビへと展開するにぎやかな曲。歌詞だけでなく曲調とシンクロしたPVも楽しい。歌/ビデオともにRyan Pardeyがサンタ役で参加。

3.Joseph, Better You Than Me(2008年)
それまでのひたすら楽しい2曲とは異なる荘厳なバラード。直前にリリースされた3rdアルバムDay & AgeのGoodnight, Travel WellにElton Johnのスタンダード感が加わったような仕上がり。Elton JohnとNeil Tennant(Pet Shop Boys)との豪華競演も聴きどころ。ただElton John御大に気を使いすぎたのか全体としてのバランスを欠いているような気がしないでもない。Brandonのソロ・ヴァージョンを聴いてみたい。

4.Happy Birthday Guadalupe(2009年)
Wild LightとMariachi El Bronxが参加、陽気にマリアッチに振り切れた、僕の知る限り最もクリスマス・ソングらしくないクリスマス・ソング。PVに出演しているのは「ビバリーヒルズ高校白書(青春白書)(Beverly Hills 90210)」のディラン・マッケイ役で知られるLuke Perry。

5.Boots(2010年)
The Killers活動休止中のリリースとなったBoots。Brandonのみが出演するPVとソロ・アルバムFlamingoの流れにある端整なサウンドからすると実質的にはBrandonのソロ作と思われる。楽曲同様、PVの冒頭にも映画「素晴らしき哉、人生(It's A Wonderful Life)」のワンシーンが用いられている。その映画に通じるクリスマスの小さな奇跡を演じているのは、実際にストリート・パフォーマーとしてR&Bのクラシック・ナンバーを歌い人気を博しているBrad Prowly。

6.The Cowboys' Christmas Ball(2011年)
カントリー・シンガーMichael Martin Murpheyの(William Lawrence Chittendenの詩を歌にした)The Cowboy's Christmas Ball(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahAdpMszGjk)をベースにハートランド・ロックで味付け。PVはThe Killers版「カウボーイ&エイリアン」。

7.I Feel It In My Bones(2012年)
ニュー・ウェイヴを経たアメリカン・ロックを思わせるサウンドと7曲中最もキャッチーなサビが、濃厚な80年代テイストを感じさせる曲。Don't Shoot Me Santaの続編的内容で、再びRyan Pardey扮する凶悪なサンタも登場するB級ホラー仕立てのビデオとともに、当然これまでのどの曲とも違うあやしくいかがわしいクリスマス・ソング。

8.Christmas In L.A.(2013年)
フォーク・ロック・バンドDawesをフィーチャー。アコースティックでフォーキーなサウンドを基調としながら、クリスマスらしい優しさ暖かさ切なさが染み渡るように広がっていくとても美しい曲。Steve Lillywhiteプロデュース、Brandon Flowers/Mark Stoermer/Taylor Goldsmithの共作、またWhite Christmasの一節が用いられているためにIrving Berlinの名もクレジットされている。ビデオにはオーウェン・ウィルソン/ハリー・ディーン・スタントンが出演。

サンタ役はジミー・キンメル、彼が司会を務めるABC“Jimmy Kimmel Live”内にてコント仕立ての制作風景とともに解禁。いたずらっ子用の「ハズレ」としてプレゼントに選ばれた石炭“ジョエル”の物語。ジミー・キンメルが用意した衣装は今年流行の「ダサい」クリスマス・セーター。

デュラン・デュラン “Change The Skyline” 謎の共作者

Rodger Taylorによる“Paper Gods”各曲解説。“Change The Skyline”の共作者「某有名バンドのフロントマン」はおそらくThe KillersのBrandon Flowersと思われる。リリース前に漏れ伝わってきた情報にはBrandon Flowersの名前があったものの、アルバムのクレジットには記載されていない。


Roger Taylor Discusses Duran Duran’s Paper Gods Track by Track
http://www.moderndrummer.com/site/2015/11/roger-taylor-discusses-duran-durans-paper-gods-track-by-track/

Roger Taylor and the hit-making British “new romantic” band Duran Duran are back on the road, promoting their fourteenth album, Paper Gods. Taylor, who originally joined Duran Duran in 1979−replacing a drum machine−takes us through the release track-by-track.

“Paper Gods” The writing of the verse on this revolved around a simple four-on-the-floor and an interesting tom sound from my Roland TD-40 kit, which incorporated notes that, if you listen carefully, come at the end of every two-bar sequence. On the extended middle section, we have to take our hats off to our mixer, Mark “Spike” Stent, who created some amazing crunchy loops to really give the song a different dynamic. This is one of the most challenging songs to play live. But we managed to take a lot of the original samples from the backing tracks and put them into trigger pads, so I can now play the parts manually while staying true to the original recording.

“Last Night in the City” This started off with a much more acoustic sound that was traditional both sonically and in arrangement. However, over the two years we spent in the studio, the song became much more electronic and now gives a healthy nod to the EDM phenomenon, with masses of overlaid electronic percussion. I’ve never been afraid of electronic drums, since I saw Kraftwerk perform in 1976.


“You Kill Me With Silence” I started this song with producer Ben “Mr.” Hudson on my Roland TD-40 kit, which I had recently taken delivery of. Ben suggested that I use my right hand/stick on the kick drum pad, which actually created an interesting loping hip-hop feel to the groove. I then played a tom part for the chorus on the Roland kit, which, interestingly enough, was overlaid with tom samples from my real kit. It resulted in the drums sounding very live and organic on the choruses.

“Pressure Off” I have to sing praise to Mark Ronson and Nile Rodgers for this one. Mark brought in a really funky loop that I just played along to, creating a nice groove on my Tama kit−which Mark always strips down to bass drum, snare, and hi-hat. Nile walks in and just jams with the Fender that wrote a billion dollars’ worth of hits, while JT [John Taylor] hits the groove, and we know the makings of a great song are in motion.

“Face for Today” Wow…we went ’round the block with this one. This started in a very traditional manner as well, and then got “electro’d up” over the two years of making Paper Gods. Our last album, All You Need Is Now, was very old-school in a way, a return to the roots of the band, so we decided to do something very different with this album.

“Dancephobia” For me, this is the closest we get to Daft Punk and Deadmaus. It’s a four-on-the-floor, club-ready groove−surely enough to cure anyone of “dancephobia.” Josh Blair, our steadfast and talented engineer/programmer/musician/producer, suggested that I try playing the staccato roll on the chorus in an unusual place, in the way that Ringo Starr often did with Beatles.

“What Are the Chances?” This is one of the first songs that we wrote for the project at guitarist Dom Brown’s studio in Wandsworth. We had set up as a four-piece live band plus vocals, and I remember that Simon was being deafened every time I whacked my snare drum, so we had to erect a sound baffle between me and him, which solved the problem. We came up with some great ideas in that room. The main observation about this song in its early days was that it sounded a little like the band Oasis; it then went through many months of reworking until we got to the final product, which is, in my opinion, one of the strongest songs on the album.

“Sunset Garage” This is probably one of the more “classic”-sounding songs on the album. The drums were really inspired by Ben Hudson, who said, “Let’s have a bit of Bev Bevan [Electric Light Orchestra] in the room.” I loosened my hi-hats, stomped on the kick drum, and let the “Bev within” loose. ELO have become one of my favorite bands over the years−those songs are killer! The chorus on this song is just JT and me doing our thing.

“Change the Skyline” This is one of those strange occurrences where the original drum part, which was the basis of another song, becomes the backbeat to an entirely different song. The song went through many, many changes and ended up totally different, but the drums remained unchanged. Little-known fact: this song was co-written by a famous front man from another celebrated band, but he has requested to remain nameless forever!

“Butterfly Girl” One of my favorite grooves on the record, with the drums and bass remaining “true to themselves.” Thank you, Josh Blair and Spike Stent, for an amazing kit sound.

“Only in Dreams” Written during the Nile Rodgers/Mark Ronson sessions. Mark knows a good groove when he hears one, and immediately seized upon this when I played it, with echoes of ’80s funk in there. I love JT’s bass line and Nile’s silver-threaded rhythm guitar parts.

“The Universe Alone” This was almost a drum-less ballad at one point. Grandiose, Bond-esque, and glorious as it is, I do love it when the drum and bass kick in, taking the track to another level that gives it “Duran-ness.” I particularly like the way the drums start off very tight and syncopated, then open up and become more and more distorted at the end of the song. A wonderful way to end our fourteenth album!
