Duran Duran To Release New Album

Published: 2004-06-17
Mega pop stars Duran Duran re-united last year for a world tour. Now they are putting out a new album. The album, which has no title yet, will be released some time in the fall. No word yet as to whether the boys will tour again to support the new material.

Duran Duran's original members – Simon LeBon, John Taylor, Andy Taylor, Roger Taylor, and Nick Rhodes – have not recorded together since 1983. Lead singer Simon LeBon said that the band has no plans to return to the same sound that made them popular in the 70s and 80s; but adds that it is important to maintain enough of the band's musical heritage that the older fans will recognize the music.

On their tour Duran Duran played to sold out houses full of screaming fans. As for the band itself LeBon said that they are closer than ever. "We're like any people who get close. But the fact is we inspire each other musically," he said. LeBon said that the band is working together like they did over 20 years ago.
