New Romantic (also known as New Romantic Special DJ Copy) is a promotional-only 4-track 12" vinyl single featuring Duran Duran, released in Japan by Toshiba EMI during 1981.

About the single Edit

There were only 100 copies of the single produced, which were issued to radio stations in Japan for radio air play only. The single incorporates a split disc format, featuring Duran Duran and the German band Kraftwerk.

Included are two versions of Duran Duran's debut single "Planet Earth", issued to promote the Duran Duran album.

Also featured are two Kraftwerk recordings of the same song. "Dentaku" is a Japanese-language version of "Taschenrechner" ("Pocket Calculator"), a song from the band's 1981 album Computer Welt. The song appeared on the English-language version of the album as "Pocket Calculator". Only the lyrics were re-recorded; the music remained the same.
