Duran Duran have released a statement on their website revealing that they have recruited English gentleman and all round legend pop/electronic producer Mark Ronson along with the one and only funk provocateur Nile Rogers to produce on their next record which is ‘”tentatively slated for Spring, 2015.”.
It isn’t the first time they have collaborated, Nile Rodgers and Duran Duran have worked together numerous times in the past on the band’s Notorious album, “The Wild Boys” single and remixed the No. 1 hit “The Reflex”. In addition Ronson co-produced Duran Duran’s last studio album, 2010’s All You Need Is Now. We can only assume that the collaboration between these big name legends of music will provide nothing but gold, and hopefully bring with it some big 80’s flair.
Whilst on the topic, Nile Rogers uploaded a classic ‘throwback’ on his twitter the other day featuring himself and Mark Ronson having a laugh as a coupla young whippersnappers.
