Has Duran Duran Returned to Roots?

I'm not a big fan of promoting a song snippet. I resisted the idea this past summer when we got a brief listen to Duran Duran's "Blame the Machine." It was easy since I didn't think the song was that great anyway. In a complete reversal, I'm sending you over to Spinner to listen to a sample of "All You Need Is Now," the upcoming single from Duran Duran's album of the same name. Producer Mark Ronson seems to have captured the band's signature sound, circa 1981. Cross your fingers. The current lineup, in case you were wondering, is John Taylor, Roger Taylor, Nick Rhodes and Simon Le Bon. The song will be sold exclusively by iTunes beginning Dec. 14, and then the nine-track album hits the downloading service one week later. The physical album won't be out until February. Rhodes also tells Spinner there will be a music video for each of the album's nine songs. Now that's old-school Duran Duran.
