Catching Up With Duran Duran

12.22.2010

Duran Duran is back and all that's old is new again thanks to executive producer Mark Ronson who time traveled the fab four to their glory days on their new album All You Need Is Now, which is being hailed as "the sequel to Rio." Featuring the dark, slinky sound that made them a household name nearly 30 years ago and a slew of collaborations with some of the music industry's edgiest young stars including Kelis, Scissor Sisters' Ana Matroic, and Owen Pallett, the songs prove that after all these years, the boys are still the true kings of synth.

We caught up with Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes to chat about All You Need Is Now, working with Pallett and Kelis, and anxiety on the eve of releasing a new album:

All You Need Is Now is now available for download on iTunes. The physical album will be in stores in February. For more on the band, visit their official website and follow them on Twitter.
