The four original members of Duran Duran -- John Taylor, Roger Taylor, Nick Rhodes, and Simon Le Bon -- return with their 13th studio album, All You Need Is Now. Produced by Grammy winner Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Lily Allen) and mixed by Spike Stent (Madonna, Bjork) the record is a return-to-roots homage to Duran Duran's celebrated musical panache.
Starting in the spring of 2009 at Sphere Studios in London, this much-anticipated Duran/Ronson reunion flourished, as writing and recording began on an exciting new body of work, which Ronson has boldly called the "imaginary follow-up to Rio that never was."
With this new-found partnership, the band was energized and excited by the music they were creating. The result is pure Duran Duran brilliance. The album features guest vocals/rap from longtime Duran Duran collaborator Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters and R&B-neo-soul star Kelis, while Owen Pallett of Arcade Fire contributes the album's string arrangements.
