From the other side of the fence I found this

Music video by Duran Duran with Steve Aoki performing Hungry Like the Wolf (Steve Aoki Remix). Im not that keen on Steve Aoki generally (being polite about it) but I really do like this (steps back and lets the whinging begin haha - "its all boom boom boom not like in my day blah blah blah , dont write them like they used to blah blah blah" etc) .

Not bad and I'm not a huge fan of Duran Duran. Why doesn't Steve remix some Human League music?

Just flicking through the current issue of Classic Pop magazine and pleased to see, on page 11, that Duran Duran have signed a record deal with major label Warner Bros and that a new album preceded by the single “Pressure Off” will be out in September 2015.

I'm really looking forward to this. I've never seen them live but I hope to on this tour!

I think Paper Gods is a great title!

I got an email about the presale for some reason. If it was for Aus I might've gone, as I've never seen them. But it wasn't.

Amazon now have 'Paper Gods' up for pre-order in both standard (12 tracks) and delux (15 tracks) editions. I will be going for the 15 track version. Release date is 11th September 2015!

What happened with this single? Not much promotion or a video? I guess maybe they are focusing on selling the album. I want to see them as I've never saw them live, but so far their tour is not coming near me.

I was really hoping for a video, and a physical format for this single, it's been a return to form for them....the visual side has always been a huge part of Duran Duran :cool:

I was hoping for some great remixes too, disappointing as this is such a great single.

I would think they would do remixes. It lends itself well to the dancefloor. The dance charts tend to be pretty friendly to older artists. It's a way to get your song heard when it's not on the radio. Unfortunately, physical singles are a thing of the past for the most part.

It doesn''t seem to have been added to the BBC2 playlist which is odd. They tend to play a lot of new singles by older artists. They've played new songs by A-ha, Culture Club, Blondie, Human League etc.

I've been preparing for the new album by checking out the 'Pop Trash' 2000 release. 'Pop Trash Movie' is good fun, I like 'Someone Else Not Me' but standout track IMO has to be 'Playing with Uranium' which I absolutely love. Two instrumental tracks amongst the twelve seems a bit daft as the total running time is only 44 mins but I'm pleased I nabbed a copy from an Amazon seller for about £7 =D

Have you heard the two other songs released from the album, the title track and You are Killing Me with Silence?

I don't like them as well as Pressure Off. They are kind of experimental and have more of the modern very electronic sound sort of like Red Carpet Massacre but not as good. Definitely not classic Duran Duran.

But I definitely want to hear the whole album.
