2014-11-14 | New album in 2015?

Notes version on the Kafe: DD14 - “almost there.” Very, very close. They write 3-4 albums worth for 1 album. Mixing now with Spike that did AYNIN. Gone up another level with him. All but 2-3 tracks not done by 3rd week of Dec. One working on lyrics, one not done yet.
Nile came on early in the process and things that they thought were right were changed. Nile is guitarist on 3 songs, 2 definitely on album. Old school meets new school between Nile and Mark and Ben.
Mr. Hudson has brought more than anything to the album than anyone else. Very open-minded. Very diverse. One sounds like 70s California driving music with modern take, another reminds him of the early Talking Heads brought into today, one is hip hop based in track but melody is much more classical; really different.
Josh is the constant on the album and has contributed out. No album title yet, not even a working title. “Sunset Garage” is a new song they did with Ben.
2015 - single out, album out, some shows, looking for different ways to approach the project. All of that will unravel over the upcoming months. No decision about who is going to put this out. Not everything comes out like you want. Like he wanted “Girl Panic!” video to come out at the same time of the song release.

2014-11-11 | Do They Know It’s Christmas?

In 1984, Bob Geldof and Midge Ure created the super-group project Band Aid to help Ethiopian poverty, releasing the charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” The song would reach No. 1 on the charts, including the prestigious UK Christmas Number One, and featured the likes of U2‘s Bono, George Michael, Phil Collins, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran and many others.
Since, the project has been revived for Band Aid 2 in 1989 and Band Aid 20 in 2004, and now will return for Band Aid 30 in 2014.
Band Aid 30 has booked Adele, One Direction, Bono, Chris Martin, Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Elbow, Bastille, and more for a new charity single, delivering an updated version of “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” with altered lyrics to address the current Ebola crisis in West Africa.

2014-10-20 | The Hunger Games

In between stops on her summer tour, Lorde curated the soundtrack to the upcoming blockbuster The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. We’ve already heard some of her handiwork in her solo cut “Yellow Flicker Beat” as well as “This Is Not A Game,” her collaboration with the Chemical Brothers and Miguel that premiered earlier today. Now, since it’s already Tuesday in the UK, the entire soundtrack tracklist has been revealed via an iTunes UK preorder page. It’s impressive! In addition to new tracks from emerging talents like Tove Lo, Raury, and Tinashé, the comp features some unexpected collaborations including a Kanye remix of Lorde, Charli XCX with Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon, and the ambitious grouping of Stromae with Lorde, Pusha T, Q-Tip, and HAIM.

Spike Stent on the mixing desk, the use of new musical technolgies such as the seaboard and, above all, the triple co-production team: Duran Duran/Mr Hudsnon/Mark Rosnon with the upcoming Nile Rodgers involvement to add, over the Summer, his funky touch to some tracks.

2014-04-28 | Read My Lips (by Fly Moon Royalty)

Dozens of musicians have covered Duran Duran songs over the years, but it's safe to say few have chosen to interpret Read My Lips, a track off the band's oft-overlooked 1990 record, Liberty.
Seattle duo Fly Moon Royalty has a good story behind their cover, though. Made up of sultry singer Adra Boo and DJ/producer Action J, here's how it came about, according to Action J:
Our friend Jenny George is a leukemia survivor who throws a fundraiser/birthday party every year around Valentine's Day called "Dancing on the Valentine." All the proceeds go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. She picks one popular (older) artist, and all of her band friends get together and play covers of the artist's discography.
In 2012 it was Duran Duran. Since we are a more production-based band, doing a cover usually means rewriting the track completely. In fear of just making a bad karaoke version of the song, I decided to flip it entirely. I turned it into a song we would likely write. The lyrics have a whole new meaning when you hear Adra sing them. It's much more sensual.

2014-04-26 | Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday for my favourite member of Duran Duran - Roger Taylor (54) from all wild boys and girls on film in Czech republic!

2014-04-23 | John Frusciante

Duran Duran said: Yes it’s true, the extraordinarily talented John Frusciante has indeed been doing some work from his home base in California on our new album. The tracks have been going back and forth via the internet, and we are thrilled with the results. We are all such big fans of John’s work and are honoured to have him adding his magic to the record! There are no current plans for John to tour with us, but his guitars sound incredible on the tracks. Taken from duranduran.com.

2014-04-07 | A Diamond In The Mind on vinyl

Hand crafted by The Vinyl Factory as a limited edition of only 2000 copies worldwide, with a diamond dust screen-printed gatefold sleeve housing two 180-gram records, ‘A Diamond In The Mind’ will be released on vinyl on 25 May, 2014.
Speaking from the studio in London, where the band are working on their new album, founding member and keyboardist, Nick Rhodes said “I still find it thrilling when we release a record on vinyl, even more so when I know that every detail is precisely as it should be. The live show we captured in Manchester, definitely sounds at its best in this format, and is the closest you can get to being at the actual concert.
Since the title is ‘A Diamond in the Mind’, when it came time for the packaging design, it occurred to me that we should use some real diamond dust on our cover artwork. I really wasn’t sure I would get away with my request, but working with the incomparable Vinyl Factory to produce this special edition, they rose to the challenge, called their local diamond dealer and voila! We have that extra little sparkle that certainly brightened my day, when I first saw the artwork proofs.” Taken from vfeditions.com.

Dear friends of Duranasty Webzine here we go again! Launched on February 2nd 2002, on the same day of the release of Planet Earth back in 1981, this website has just entered its 12th year of exsistence... We are glad to deliver another update. In a time where social media is the main place to share news, we think that is still important for an international band like Duran Duran to have active fan-sites. While Duran Duran news and pictures flow fast like a river that never stop through thousand of posts and tweets, we still like to make the point on the status of the band, we like to stop and read that important sentence and put it into perspective, we like to put together all the small pieces of the big Duran Duran puzzle. As always we hope to provide with a new installments something interesting to read and watch, hopefully to print out and add to your collection like an old fanzine. Enjoy! More on duranasty.com.

2014-02-13 | Duran Duran recorded with the choirs

This week in London, Duran Duran recorded with the Voce Chamber Choir and the London Youth Chamber Choir, led by their Musical Director Suzi Digby OBE. The two choirs came together on Monday evening with members of the band to record vocals on several new songs on Duran Duran’s upcoming studio album. The session took place at St. Gabriel’s Church in Pimlico. Voce Chamber Choirs, who most recently worked with The Rolling Stones, and London Youth Chamber Choir, who performed at the National Portrait Gallery on February 8th, had a great time recording with the band. Their vocals were exactly the touch Duran Duran were looking for. (info: duranduran.com)

2014-02-13 | Voce Chamber Choir

From vocechamberchoir.org.uk: On Monday evening Voce Chamber Choir were joined by some very special guests - Simon le Bon and John Taylor from Duran Duran! The boys thought Voce might be an excellent fit for some tracks on their forthcoming studio album. They'd brought along some shiny recording equipment, so together with MD Suzi Digby and some pals from the London Youth Choir, we sang through brand new Duran Duran material arranged for SATB choir by Friend of Voce, composer Toby Young. Singing live with Simon le Bon and John Taylor was simply an amazing experience. We can’t wait to hear the finished product! You can see photos of recording session on Duran Duran’s website. (info: vocechamberchoir.org.uk)

2014-02-01 | John Taylor at Bass Guitar Show?

Duran Duran announced on Feb. 1 on the band's official website that John Taylor will appear at the London Bass Guitar Show at the London Olympia on March 2. The bassist plans to hit the show's main stage at 3 p.m. to talk about his autobiography, “In The Pleasure Groove: Love, Death and Duran Duran.” In addition, Taylor will be "playing his signature Peavey bass and regaling us with tales from his unique career," according to duranduran.com. More information and tickets can be found at www.londonbassguitarshow.com.
The news comes as Duran Duran has ramped up its association with Manimal Vinyl. Taylor made a mix tape for Manimal last month, and a Duran Duran tribute album is in the works. Rumored to be part of the album are Warpaint's version of "The Chauffeur," Halo Circus' take on "Do You Believe in Shame?" and Moby performing "Rio," among other Duran Duran classics.

2014-01-15 | Decade Cover

QandA from dd.com: I was looking at the cover of DECADE album and seem to recognize the picture of Simon, which is from a shoot by Guido Harari; the picture of Nick is from a Virginia Liberatore session, but I don’t recall where John’s one s taken from; can you be so kind to help me please. Thanx, Cami

“Hi Cami, No one seems to remember who took the John photo, unfortunately. You are absolutely right about my photo being taken by Virginia Liberatore. In the end, we simply gave the designer, Stephen Sprouse a large selection of photos and he chose the photographs he wanted to use for the cover artwork. They are all from different places, but somehow his vivid styling glued everything together. Definitely one of my personal favorites of our album covers. Nick”

2014-01-04 | Nick is funny

Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran once said of London nightlife entrepreneur Nick Valentine, "Nick's watch has always been set 15 minutes ahead of everyone else in London nightlife. It means he usually sees things first, but inevitably gets home last." :-) (info: thedailybeast.com)
