Duran deluxe redux

Sir Nicholas Of Rhodes, the arch and arty member of worldwide superstar pop combo Duran Duran, has been up all night mixing some new material for the forthcoming physical configurations of their latest longplayer, "All You Need Is Now".

Please give him your undivided attention as he rattles off a number of upcoming special events for the fearsome foursome.

The fresh incarnation of "All You Need Is Now" will be available on CD, vinyl and a deluxe edition CD with a bonus DVD. The deluxified package will include an additional song called "Networker Nation" along with a DVD featuring rare studio footage, as well as exclusive commentary from the band about the nine songs on the previously released digital album.

The following is the expanded tracklisting for "All You Need Is Now".

1. All You Need Is Now
2. Blame The Machines
3. Being Followed
4. Leave A Light On
5. Safe (In The Heat Of The Moment)
6. Girl Panic!
7. A Diamond In The Mind
8. The Man Who Stole A Leopard
9. Other People's Lives
10. Mediterranea
11. Too Bad You're So Beautiful
12. Runaway Runaway
13. Return To Now
14. Before the Rain

The expanded physical configuration of the elpee features five new songs including "A Diamond In The Mind" (a reference to a lyric from the first single and title track of the album), "Other People's Lives", "Mediterranea", "Too Bad You're So Beautiful" and "Return To Now".

The addition of "Networker Nation" on the deluxe edition brings the tally of songs to fifteen. I'm curious as to where the other three songs will turn up. Nick mentions "Too Close To The Sun", "Early Summer Nerves" and "This Lost Weekend". However, none of them are featured on the tracklistings for any of the physical releases. Could there be another version of the longplayer in the works?


  1. One hopes that the CD + DVD will be less than a king's ransom in cost. Hey ho - Amazon has it for pre-order for $20! Nice work, lads! The only thing left to top this off is if early adopters who bought the 9-track Dl edition on iTunes could upgrade their purchase to the full monty for a modest sum. It would be the right thing to do.

  2. Two of them are inst interludes, so it ends up as only 2 full songs we don't know. Boo.

  3. wonder when there next singles box set will hit

    and the next set of remasters really would be nice to hear the wedding album remaster

  4. where the fuck is this album already???...

    sheez...I cannot wait any longer.
