23, 2010 | Day Two since the digital release of the new smashing
Duran Duran album 'All You Need Is Now' and it's still on top of almost
all iTunes charts. I like to think that this is not only a success for
Duran Duran but it's also a success for us all, the fans who have made
this possible. During the last days the fan community has been more
united than ever and determinated to make this happen. Facebook, twitter
all the Duran Duran fansites and message boards have done their best
to help the Duran Duran team to spread the voice and make the album
release on iTunes a success and the reason is simple, All You Need Is
Now is just a fantastic album and Duran Duran just deserve all our support.
I'm in love with the album, I'm proud of my favourite band but I'm also
proud of you all, fans just like me. This time, more than ever, I had
the feeling that the fans and the band were united, just like a big
virtual family. It
was great to be online on the 21 and see all this happening, minute
by minute with John Taylor sending messages and charts updates via facebook
and twitter like one of us. This
is our moment duranies, this is our album, this is our year and the
best is yet to come with the live shows next year.
Thank you Simon, John, Nick and Roger for making us sing, dance, shout,
move, dream, laugh, cry, thanks for making all this possible but most
of all thanks for the music.

on Dec 17 | Reuters | Members of iconic rock band Duran Duran
talk about their 13th studio album "All You Need Is Now". New York
City, December 13, 2010 Simon and Nick says: "I think we all wanted to
get a little bit more experimental with this record. We wanted to reconnect
with our fans, on the territory on which the band, and Mark Ronson who is
the producer, felt we should own. And that was this kind of modern synth-dance-experimental
pop music. Full coverage on the current Tv and Radio Promotion and quality
video downloads. Check it out!
13 | On December 10 Simon and Nick appeared on the 8 p.m. show Authentic
Sh*t, on eastvillage radio, hosted by Mark Ronson. The guys gave fans a special
treat by unveiling the brand-new songs The Man Who Stole A Leopard and some
other cool snippets from the upcoming album. The guys did a very informal
and funny interview with Ronson at the station and they even answered fans
questions sent via twitter. Over 700 people showed up on First Avenue to see
the guys! In this post you'll find all about 'The Man Who Stole A
Leopard', including the lyrics, info about the recent press and lots
9 | Retroduranasty: it's just coincidence? | On December 8
1980 A&R man Dave Ambrose from EMI
signs Duran Duran; the band retains creative control over music, videos, album
covers, etc. Duran Duran earns an advance of 42,000 pounds for album, tour,
and video production, and a retainer of 50 pounds each per week. The same
day they record "Anyone Out There", "Planet Earth", "Friends
of Mine", and "Late Bar" at EMI's studios in London, with recordings
released on Duran Duran, their first album. The same day, in the evening,
they play at Marquee Club, London. It's the first headlining show after the
8 2010 Duran Duran is still
alive and kicking and they release worldwide the first single, off the new
album, as a free download on iTunes. They say it's an early Christmas present
to their loyal fan-base. Some fans have expressed their thoughts about the
new Duran Duran sound through duranasty.com.
7 | There's no official word on the actual reason behind
the premature digital release of All You Need Is Now, in fact the
first single will be released almost one week prior the scheduled
day! Maybe just because there are leaked copies of the track circulating
on the web so the sooner is available to buy the better. It migh be
also because the South African tour has been cancelled and the band
have now more time to do some promotion... In fact Simon and Nick
will be flying to New York on Wednesday to do a full week of promotion...
3 | Duran Duran have regretfully had to pull out of their upcoming
South African tour dates [which were slated to take place December 7 –
12] because the show promoter defaulted on the contract, leaving the band
members with no other option but to cancel the shows...
No Kylie, No Rihanna, etc... Remember this
post filled with hypothesis about the possible female vocal on 'Leopard',
well, forget about it! From a reliable source I have been informed that
isn't any of them... things are now getting even more interesting...
I assume is gonna be a total surprise then!
