Enlisting the help of some of the most exciting names of the last 50 years, with 'FUTURE PAST,' Duran Duran have delivered another incredible genre-spanning piece of work that once again sets them apart from the pack. Working alongside DJ / producer Erol Alkan and pioneering Italian composer / producer Giorgio Moroder, who added his magic to create two instant future classics ('BEAUTIFUL LIES,' 'TONIGHT UNITED'), as well as some of the most unexpected and inspiring names in pop - including Swedish hitmaker, Tove Lo on 'GIVE IT ALL UP,' 'Queen of Drill' Ivorian Doll on 'HAMMERHEAD' and Japan's CHAI on 'MORE JOY!'. In addition, Blur's Graham Coxon co-wrote and lends his guitar to several tracks on the record and David Bowie's former pianist Mike Garson adds an exquisite sonic layer to album closer 'FALLING'. The record, which was recorded across studios in London and LA over lockdown, also features long-time collaborator Mark Ronson who co-wrote and played on 'WING,' and was mixed by Mark 'Spike' Stent.
