Duran Duran have always revelled in the shadows, playing with artistic, aesthetic, and emotional extremes. As much as you can move and shout along to the timeless chants of Hungry Like the Wolf,Ordinary World, or Rio, it feels most natural do sounder the cover of night. They’re the ultimate soundtrack to sharing secrets in close whispers on the dance floor before the lights go up. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame®in 2022, they’ve sold north of 100 million albums around the world in addition to scoring 18 American chart hits and 21 Top 20 UK smashes. Their various awards and accolades have included two GRAMMY®Awards, two Ivor Novellos, two BRIT Awards (including“Outstanding Contribution to Music”in 2004), and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They penned the only James Bond theme to reach #1 in the US, while David Lynch helmed their concert film. You can hear them sampled in songs by everyone from The Notorious B.I.G. to 5 Seconds of Summer and in reverent covers by Muse, Deftones, and more. Rio has claimed spots on Q’s “100 Greatest British Albums,” NME’s “100 Greatest Albums of All Time,”and Pitchfork’s “Top 100 Albums of the 1980s.” Summing up their enduring impact,Vanity Fair proclaimed,“Duran Duran’s always been about constant innovation and the ‘new’.”Given a penchant and flair for fashion, rock music never looked the same after their emergence either. Their impact as style icons has been well-documented by WWD, Vogue, and more. In between selling out shows worldwide,2021’s FUTURE PAST saw the group earn widespread acclaim from Salon,Rolling Stone, and more. Now, the iconic UK quartet unearth bright melodies from darkness as they thread together new tunes, covers, and alternate versions of classics on their 16th full-length offering, DANSE MACABRE [Tape Modern/BMG].
