Late Night FDL: What Happens Tomorrow

Duran Duran – What Happens Tomorrow

Duran Duran just announced their new album; Paper Gods…

Duran Duran will release their 14th studio album, Paper Gods in the U.S. on September 18th and in the rest of the world on September 11th through Warner Bros. Records.

Singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor, and drummer Roger Taylor recorded the album in London with producers Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Josh Blair and Mr Hudson. {…}

The songs on Paper Gods capture the duality and sense of conflict at the heart of Duran Duran’s music. ‘It really goes back to that strange early Duran mix: the hard-edged pop, coexisting with this dark, weird, experimental side,’ John says.

‘That’s something that’s essential to all of us,’ Nick adds. ‘It’s great to be able to lift people’s spirits – and your own – with a strong shot of pure pop, but the world we live in isn’t all just made of that stuff, so it seems natural to me that we have kept one foot in the darker, more Gothic side of life.’ {…}

‘We found a whole new level of inspiration on this album,’ says Rhodes.

‘We’ve allowed ourselves the time to make music that we can be proud of,’ adds Le Bon. ‘I judge what we release by my favourite albums – Horses, Harvest, Let It Bleed, Blue, Transformer, Aladdin Sane. Those are classic albums. The only rule is it’s got to be music you can live with for the rest of your life.’ {…}

Alongside news of the new album, Duran Duran have also announced that they will perform a series of summer festivals, as well as several shows in the U.S. in September and October, followed by a UK arena tour that kicks off in late November.

I’ll see y’all tomorrow nite…! Be nice…!
