Mark Ronson Debuts New Duran Duran Song on Radio Show

Posted November 10th, 2010 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

Producer du jour Mark Ronson has been working with Duran Duran on its 13th studio album for the bulk of this year. It’s expected to be released some time in 2011 and is currently titled All You Need Is Now. Ronson has played a few snippets and sneak peaks of tracks on his radio show on East Village Radio over the last few months, including this extended bit from “Being Followed.” After the disastrous failed experiment that was Red Carpet Massacre, Duran Duran has obviously listened to the fan backlash and turned inward for inspiration. With Ronson at the helm, who is an admitted Duran fanboy, it’s no surprise that the music harkens back to early period Duran Duran with an emphasis on hooks, synths, and obscure lyrics. This snippet sounds promising, and I’m very intrigued to hear what Ronson can do to salvage the damage from the last record. [via Consequence of Sound]
