The band’s forthcoming new record release is a 2LP set that includes all 15 tracks from Future Past plus their cover of David Bowie’s Five Years. The first LP is red, while the second is green. The gatefold package features a new silver/grey version of the cover art and also includes two 12″ x 12″ art booklets.
The past 12 months have seen Duran Duran release their widely acclaimed 15th studio album Future Past, confirmed to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, perform live at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace, headline London’s Hyde Park and, in a full circle moment, close the opening ceremony of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in their hometown of Birmingham. All this before embarking on a huge headline tour of North America that included sold out shows at iconic venues such as New York’s Madison Square Garden and three nights at the Hollywood Bowl.
