Lipstick, Powder & Paint: The New Romantics is a compilation album featuring Arcadia, release in the UK by EMI Premium during 1997.

About the album[]

The album is a selection of songs by various pop and New Romantic acts, which was part of The Sunday Times newspaper Music Collection Series.

The compilation features Arcadia's debut single "Election Day", a song Duran Duran have performed live during shows such as the Radio City Music Hall (1989) and at Edinburgh Castle (2009).

Other Duran Duran connections include the band appearing as an opening act on Blondie's Tracks Across America Tour in 1982, plus Nick Rhodes' co-produced Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" (a song which prevented "Hungry Like The Wolf" from becoming Duran Duran's first UK no.1 single).
