Duran Duran share “TONIGHT UNITED”, taken from their upcoming fifteenth studio album FUTURE PAST, set for global release on October 22 via TAPE MODERN for BMG. Pre-order/save/add HERE.
“TONIGHT UNITED” was produced by the legendary composer, songwriter and electronic dance music pioneer, Giorgio Moroder, who adds his magic to create an instant future classic. “Giorgio Moroder, Duran Duran… this is music for a world that’s coming back together.” says Simon Le Bon.
The internationally acclaimed, multi-platinum, award-winning pop legends are headlining this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival, where they will perform on the main stage on Sunday, October 3 and 10. The band will also be playing at the upcoming Global Citizen LIVE on September 25 where they will perform “ANNIVERSARY”, which is currently climbing at HOT AC. In addition, because of its message, ‘TONIGHT UNITED’ has been chosen by the organizers to be used as part of the theme music throughout the 24-hour event.
Enrolling the help of some of the most exciting names of the last 50 years, with FUTURE PAST Duran Duran has delivered yet another incredible genre-spanning piece of work that once again sets them apart from the pack. Working alongside British DJ / producer Erol Alkan and pioneering Italian composer / producer Giorgio Moroder, the band has enlisted the help of some of the most unexpected and inspiring names in pop – including multi-platinum Swedish hit-maker Tove Lo, ‘Queen of Drill’ Ivorian Doll, and Japan’s CHAI on “MORE JOY!”’. In addition, Blur’s Graham Coxon co-wrote and lends his guitar to several tracks on the record, and David Bowie’s former pianist Mike Garson adds an exquisite sonic layer to album closer “FALLING”. The record, which was recorded across studios in London and LA over lockdown, also features long-time collaborator Mark Ronson who co-wrote and played on “WING”, and was mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent.
Earlier this year, Duran Duran captivated American audiences with their spellbinding performance at the Billboard Music Awards where they debuted their single “INVISIBLE” as well as classics, “Notorious” and “Hungry Like The Wolf,” (WATCH). They also recently played on NBC’s The Today Show (WATCH) and just days ago paid a visit to Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live! With Andy Cohen.
FUTURE PAST will be available on all digital platforms, as well as in a variety of physical formats: standard CD, cassette, a limited edition deluxe hardback book CD featuring three additional tracks, and colored vinyl.
Release Date: October 22, 2021
