“We are truly grateful that we get to do what we do on a daily basis and that we still love our job as much as we did when we started out some four decades ago” – Simon Le Bon
Speaking about the upcoming dates, Simon Le Bon reveals, “It’s remarkable to me that as a band, we are still hitting new milestones, and introducing the sound of DD to new generations of music lovers. We are truly grateful that we get to do what we do on a daily basis and that we still love our job as much as we did when we started out some four decades ago.”
Enlisting the help of some of the most exciting names of the last 50 years, with ‘Future Past,’ Duran Duran has delivered another incredible genre-spanning piece of work that once again sets them apart from the pack. Working alongside DJ / producer Erol Alkanand pioneering Italian composer & producer Giorgio Moroder, who added his magic to create two instant future classics (‘Beautiful Lies,’ and ‘Tonight United’), as well as some of the most unexpected and inspiring names in pop – including Swedish hitmaker, Tove Lo on ‘Give It All Up,’ ‘Queen of Drill’ Ivorian Doll on ‘Hammerhead’and Japan’s Chai on ‘More Joy!’.
In addition, Blur’s Graham Coxon co-wrote and lends his guitar to several tracks on the record and David Bowie’s former pianist Mike Garson adds an exquisite sonic layer to album closer ‘Falling’. The record, which was recorded across studios in London and LA over lockdown, also features long-time collaborator Mark Ronson who co-wrote and played on ‘Wing,’ and was mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent.
The deluxe edition of ‘Future Past (Complete Edition)’ is out now via BMG. The 2LP set includes all 15 tracks from Future Past plus Duran Duran’s cover of David Bowie’s “Five Years”. The first LP is red, the second is green. The gatefold package features a new silver/grey version of the cover art and also includes two 12″ x 12″ art booklets.
