Duran Duran News

Duran Duran has been everywhere lately, making the rounds on various radio stations and even performing at the Emmy's last Sunday. Their new album Red Carpet Massacre will be released on Novermber 13th here in the U.S. and November 12th in Europe. There will be 2 versions of the album available. The standard version and a deluxe version which will contain a DVD of 45 minutes of footage of the making of the album, including all the guest stars, producers, etc. as well as live and backstage footage from various concerts and events.

Justin Timberlake co-produced "Falling Down" the band's first single which has slowly been gaining airplay across the country. The video for the track will be shot tomorrow in Los Angeles by director Anthony Mandler (Beyonce "Irreplaceable", Rihanna "Umbrealla"). The B Side to "Falling Down" will be a track called "Cry Baby Cry" which will be found only on the "Falling Down" single or on iTunes. The album will consist of 12 tracks, 3 of which are produced by Timbaland and Danja, 1 of which by Justin Timberlake, an untold amount produced by only Danja, and the rest by other producers.

Have you ever wondered how Duran Duran came to meet Timbaland and Justin? You can hear Simon Lebon, the lead singer of Duran Duran, talk about how he and the band got to work with Tim and JT on Star 98.7 Part 1 and Part 2. As well as Mix 107.7.

Star 98.7 is also planing to have a listening party of the entire Red Massacre album with the band, coming up sometime this week. As always we will keep you posted on this especially if any new Timbo/Danja tracks are previewed. We have still yet to hear "Zoomin' In" and any of the Danja solo produced tracks. Let's hope they appear soon.

I have to give huge thanks to April the biggest Duran Duran fan on the planet!
