"Rose Arcana" is an instrumental by Arcadia, released as the B-side to their third single "The Promise" from the album So Red the Rose by EMI-Parlophone in 1986.

About the instrumental Edit

Composed by Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes, the instrumental was co-production by Alex Sadkin who also produced Duran Duran's Seven and the Ragged Tiger album.

"Rose Arcana" is a 0:51 seconds recording on the So Red the Rose album. The instrumental is an extended version of 5:37 minutes on the B-side to Arcadia's third single "The Promise". It's believed the 0:51 seconds on the album was down to time constraints.
