At the dawn of the 1980s, a group of young men in Birmingham, England, had a sound in their ears — one with echoes of glam, art-pop and dance. The band they formed quickly became a household name and, four decades later, Duran Duran has sold more than 100 million records, had 18 American hit singles, 20 UK Top 20 tunes and continue to perform to huge concert audiences around the world.

More remarkable still is the way the band — singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor — have achieved this: by fusing pop music, art, technology, and fashion with a sense of style and confidence all their own. Never losing the desire to innovate, they have proven themselves timeless and have always remained ahead of the curve.

Hit songs recorded by Duran Duran include:  “A View to a Kill,” “Save a Prayer,” “Girls on Film,” “Finest Hour,” “Come Undone,” “Hungry Like the Wolf,” “Rio” and many more.

Its most recent album, “Paper Gods,” is the iconic British band’s highest-charting release in 22 years and has been hailed by critics and fans alike as Duran Duran’s best body of work in two decades. This, the group’s 14th studio album, was produced by Grammy award-winners Mark Ronson and Nile Rodgers, alongside Mr Hudson and Josh Blair. It features collaborations with Janelle Monáe, John Frusciante, Kiesza and Jonas Bjerre (of Mew).
