More Info:Welcome to Funplex, the first record of the 21st century from the B-52s. "It's loud, sexy rock and roll, with the beat pumped up to hot pink," says guitarist Keith Strickland. Eleven fresh new songs, crafted by the groundbreaking band that put Athens, GA on the musical map in the late '70s, and conquered the world with its savvy hooks, unconventional approach to music-making and original style. "Funplex sounds like us, updated," adds Fred Schneider. "It's the B-52s now - or fifteen years from now."
''Funplex'' is the seventh studio album (eighth overall) by The B-52s, recorded during 2006 and 2007. The album was released on March 25, 2008.
It is the first album of new material that the group has released since ''Good Stuff'' in 1992, although the band did record two new songs for their 1998 compilation album ''Time Capsule: Songs for a Future Generation''.
The album came as a result of the band's renewed touring, and a feeling that they needed something new to perform. Guitarist Keith Strickland was inspired to create an updated sound for the band when listening to the New Order album ''Get Ready'' and hired producer Steve Osborne as a result. A more modern use of electronica production is the most distinct mark of the band's new sound.
The first single from the album was released digitally on 29 January 2008, and is the title track, "Funplex". A music video was filmed in West Hollywood on March 1, 2008 and featured a cameo appearance by RuPaul who appeared in the video for "Love Shack".
Exclusive, limited-edition autographed copies were offered by Newbury Comics and FYE, and a special limited-edition double-disc set of ''Funplex'' is available only at Target stores in the U.S. The bonus disc features five live tracks recorded at the band's November 16, 2007 concert at the Roxy in Los Angeles. Two additional live tracks from that same concert are available exclusively on iTunes.
''Funplex'' debuted at number 11 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling about 30,000 copies in its first week.
The second single from the album was "Juliet of the Spirits". - Wikipedia
