Video Q&A: Duran Duran Talks New Album, Career Highlights
While Duran Duran has enjoyed a storied three-decade career, the New Wave pioneers aren't content to sit back and leave their legacy incomplete. "All You Need is Now," the group's thirteenth album out digitally on iTunes today (Dec. 21), was produced by Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Wale) and recalls the fun-loving energy of Duran Duran's 1982 classic "Rio."
"The only thing that matters is what you're doing musically now," says singer Simon Le Bon, who sat down with keyboardist Nick Rhodes to discuss the direction of the new album with Billboard.com. "You don't look back and let yourself have to live up to any of your past successes. You don't let yourself get self-conscious. You just concentrate on the music of the moment."
