Five years after the release of “All You Need Is Now,” Duran Duran is set to release a new album before the year ends.
As previously announced, the group’s 14 th studio album will be released under Warner Bros.
In a report by Pitchfork, the group officially signed the deal last March 27, as the group is expected to release the LP before the year ends.
“We could not be happier to be making this deal with Warner Bros, and are looking forward to working on our forthcoming album release with not only their US team but also everyone else within the Warner family around the world,” said the band.
“We are also excited that this deal means we will be reunited with our catalogue after years apart – and in that sense it really feels a little like coming home.” Meanwhile, further reports claimed that Duran Duran is also working with a handful of artists to collaborate with for the next record.
Included in the list are Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, ex Red Hot Chili Peppers Guitarist John Frusciante and even Lindsay Lohan.
“I am thrilled to welcome Duran Duran into the Warner Bros.
family,” President Dan McCarroll said.
“This is an iconic, enduring band that continues to make brilliant, timeless pop music.
The combination of Duran Duran, Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson and Mr Hudson is a dream team, and the songs they have created together for this new record are as fresh and compelling as anything in the band’s long career.” “All of us at WBR are looking forward to working with Simon, Nick, John, and Roger as they begin this exciting new chapter.”
