Duran Duran's stunning new album: 'All You Need Is Now', has already been proclaimed a triumph by fans and critics alike, as buzz continues to build towards the release of the full length record in March. Produced by Grammy Award-winner Mark Ronson [Amy Winehouse, Adele, Kaiser Chiefs, Lily Allen] and mixed by Spike Stent [Madonna, Björk, No Doubt], it features guest vocals / rap from longtime Duran Duran pal / collaborator Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters and R&B / neo-soul superstar Kelis; while Owen Pallett of Arcade Fire contributes the album's string arrangements.
'All You Need Is Now' is a return-to-roots homage to Duran Duran's most celebrated musical panache, which has already been dubbed by its producer as the "imaginary follow up to Rio that never was."
Throughout their outstanding career Duran Duran has sold more than 80 million records, with 30 chart toppers in the UK, 18 American hit singles and a global presence that guarantees them huge concert audiences on five continents. Now a seemingly unstoppable force, with no fewer than five prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards under their belts in the last few years alone (MTV Video Music Awards, the Brit Awards, the Ivor Novellos, Q Magazine and the Spanish Ondas), the four original members of Duran Duran are in a category with only a handful of other internationally acclaimed artists. As this new chapter begins, they have nothing left to prove, but everything to play for. So for them and their loyal army of fans… All You Need Is Now!
