Duran Duran to debut new single later this month
By Classic Pop | May 14, 2021
Duran Duran are set to unveil a brand new single at this year’s Billboard Music Awards.
Taking place on 23 May, the band will stream their performance live, and will be joined by special guest Graham Coxon of Blur.
Duran Duran released a cover of David Bowie’s Five Years earlier this year, but the new song will be their first original single since 2015’s Pressure Off.
Speaking to Classic Pop last year, Simon Le Bon described the new album as “quite naked, raw, the grass is slightly sharp and twinkly rather than smooth. It’s groovy, modern and very honest.”
Duran Duran were due to headline this year’s BST Hyde Park event, but the gig was postponed until 2022. The band will return in 2022 and will headline alongside Pearl Jam.
