NEW: Duran Duran – All You Need Is Now

Duran Duran is in studio with mega producer Mark Ronson who is determind to get the boys back to their original sound that made them world famous.   Mark has stated that he was focused on getting Duran Duran back to their “Rio” sound.   I for one am anxiously awaiting this return to form from Duran Duran.

You can also check out a 30 second sneak peek at another track called Blame the Machines here.

NEW Duran Duran track!

Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse’s producer for “Back to Black”) is currently in studio producing Duran Duran’s forth coming album.  Mark Ronson debuted 30 seconds of a new track called Blame the Machines on his East Village Radio Show.  Sounds like Mark has got Duran Duran back to their showcase form, so enjoy the 30 second preview.  Also note, this a radio rip, so it’s not the greatest quality.
