Duran Duran have sold over 100 million records, had 18 American and 21 UK hit singles, won countless awards and continue to perform to huge concert audiences around the world. Consistently fusing art, technology and fashion with their unique and infectious sound, singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor have proven themselves timeless - always innovating, to remain ahead of the curve.
Their last album, 2015’s Paper Gods, was hailed by critics and fans alike as their best body of work in more than two decades. Produced by Mark Ronson and Nile Rodgers, alongside Mr Hudson and Josh Blair, the record features collaborations with Janelle Monáe, John Frusciante, Kiesza and Jonas Bjerre (of Mew.) A global, three year, sold-out arena tour followed.
Duran Duran are currently in the studio working on their follow-up to Paper Gods with several exciting collaborators, to be announced soon. This, their fifteenth studio album, is slated for release in 2020, alongside a series of 40 thrilling projects and live events that will celebrate their long and illustrious career.
