Duran Duran are back in the studio working on an album with John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Mark Ronson. Duran Duran proved in 2010 that they are still a force with the album "All You Need is Now" and it appears they are looking to make that force even stronger with the addition of the two major collaborators.
The band is in the studio working on their 14th studio album with producer Mark Ronson who produced "Now" and has been behind tracks on albums by Amy Winehouse, Adele and Paul McCartney.
On Wednesday, they confirmed a rumored second collaboration for the set with former Red Hot Chili Pepper's guitarist John Frusciante. The band had wanted to keep his work a surprise but the constant talk finally forced them to issue the statement:
We were holding this exciting news because we were hoping to give you full details when we announced, but as word has leaked out, catching us rather off guard, we wanted to confirm. yes it's true, the extraordinarily talented John Frusciante has indeed been doing some work from his home base in California on our new album. The tracks have been going back and forth via the internet, and we are thrilled with the results. We are all such big fans of John's work and are honoured to have him adding his magic to the record! There are no current plans for John to tour with us, but his guitars sound incredible on the tracks.
Hoping to have more news for you soon.
- Simon, John, Nick & Roger
