Duran Duran release their 14th studio album, Paper Gods on Friday September 11.

Singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor, and drummer Roger Taylor recorded the album in London with producers Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, and Josh Blair. Also on board is Kanye West/Jay-Z collaborator Mr. Hudson.

The record – which is released through Warners - features former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, Canadian Juno-Award winning singer Kiesza, Mr. Hudson, violinist Davidé Rossi and actress Lindsay Lohan.

“It really goes back to that strange early Duran mix: the hard-edged pop, coexisting with this dark, weird, experimental side,” remarks John Taylor.

Nick Rhodes declares that this pop ingredient is  “essential to all of us. It’s great to be able to lift people’s spirits — and your own — with a strong shot of pure pop, but the world we live in isn’t all just made of that stuff, so it seems natural to me that we have kept one foot in the darker, more Gothic side of life.”
