"New Religion" is a Duran Duran song and the sixth track on their second album Rio.

About the song[edit]

The song is described in the Rio liner notes as "a dialogue between the ego and the alter-ego", which is reflected in the refrain, where two conflicting voices sing on top of each other.

Song versions[edit]

  • "New Religion" (5:32) - The standard version of the song.
  • "New Religion (Carnival Remix)" (5:13) - A completely different mix, which eliminates most of the vocals, first appeared on the Japanese edition of the Carnival EP.[1]
