album titles

Ask Katy

Hi,I was reading the discography in the back of Duran Duran "The Book Of Words" and there was a "to be announced" album and video called "Burning Bright" listed. It looks like "The Wild Boys" was supposed to be on it. Does this mean that "Burning Bright" was the working title for "Arena"? All my love to the band, Meredith, Brooklyn, NY.

I CHECKED WITH THE GUYS AND THEY AREN'T SURE, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GOOD AT REMEMBERING FIRST TITLES. FOR EXAMPLE, THE WEDDING ALBUM WAS GOING TO BE CALLED FOUR ON THE FLOOR, BUT I GOTTA SAY, THEY REALLY HAVE NO CLUE AS TO WHAT "BURNING BRIGHT" WAS...NICK SAID HE WOULD GUESS THAT IT WAS MORE LIKELY REFERRING TO THE SEVEN AND THE RAGGED TIGER ALBUM (IT CERTAINLY WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER TITLE!) TAKEN FROM A LINE IN A WILLIAM BLAKE POEM "TYGER TYGER BURNING BRIGHT." SINCE WE DIDN'T USE IT FOR THAT RELEASE, EVEN THOUGH IT INCLUDED A SONG CALLED TIGER TIGER, IT COULD HAVE BEEN ON E OF THOSE CONCEPTUAL FOLLOW THROUGH WITH CONTINUITY MOMENTS....
