Product Details:

The Vinyl Factory are proud to present a stunning collectors edition of Duran Duran's new album 'ALL YOU NEED IS NOW' - their critically acclaimed, return to roots tour-de-force, produced by Mark Ronson.



Renowned for fusing pop music with art and fashion in groundbreaking ways, Duran Duran have always been at the forefront of the art scene, and this super limited pop art masterpiece sets a new bar even by their standards.



Enlisting the superb talents of British artist Clunie Reid (Saatchi Gallery, the Tate, New Museum NY), with art direction by UK fashion magazine POP’s creative team, under the steer of fast-rising art talent Rory McCartney, the band have individually signed and numbered each edition.



Limited to only 500 copies worldwide, and available to order exclusively from The Vinyl Factory, each collectors copy comprises:

A hand-crafted, transparent black Perspex box with clear face on outer front, providing an artwork frame that can be individually curated by each owner.

Five heavyweight 180-gram clear vinyl records pressed on the classic EMI 1400, each mastered for vinyl, with the new album pressed across two records, plus an LP of bonus tracks and two 12" remixes (full tracklist below), including the much sought-after David Lynch reworking of Girl Panic !
• Five beautifully treated bespoke record sleeves, featuring remarkable exclusive artwork on both sides by Clunie Reid.

• Exclusive 36-page book with lyrics silver foiled onto black pages, housed in a gorgeous silver mirrored paper cover, each hand signed and numbered by the members of Duran Duran.
Exclusive 36-page book showcasing Clunie Reid's album artwork, with a die-cut front cover of the band's instantly recognisable D logo.

Available to pre-order now, exclusively from The Vinyl Factory

Work on 'ALL YOU NEED IS NOW' started in the late Spring of 2009, at Sphere Studios in London, and as the much-anticipated Duran/Ronson union flourished, and the writing and recording of an exciting new body of work began, Ronson boldly stated that he felt they were making the “imaginary follow up to Rio that never was.”

With this newfound partnership, the band were energized and excited by the music they were creating. The result is nothing short of pure Duran Duran brilliance harking back to their classic signature sound. 



Acclaimed by everyone from the FT to Rolling Stone as their best album for 18 years, 'ALL YOU NEED IS NOW' features guest vocals/rap from longtime Duran Duran pal/collaborator Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters and R&B / neo-soul superstar Kelis, while Owen Pallett of Arcade Fire contributes the album’s string arrangements.

"All You Need Is Now teams Duran Duran with super producer Mark Ronson: the fit proves as immaculate as each party’s bespoke tailoring."
The Financial Times (4/5)

"The best album Duran Duran has released since  'Rio', a collection that manages what their best material always has, blending art with grand gestures and popcraft."
Pop Matters (4/5)

"Duran Duran’s 13th album emerges as their best in years...full of tunes and pizzazz."
The Telegraph (4/5)

"This is Duran sounding as good as people remember...the title track and groove-thrusting Too Bad You're So Beautiful are once-heard, sing-the-chorus pop stonkers. Déjà vu almost overwhelms The Man Who Stole a Leopard and Leave a Light On's echoes of The Chauffeur and Save a Prayer respectively."
The Guardian (4/5)

"Their best album for 18 years."
BBC Music (4/5)

"A hoot"
Rolling Stone (4/5)
With a phenomenal career that has spanned three decades, and record sales of more than 80 million, Duran Duran certainly has a storied history, but this new tale begins back in 2008.

As part of a year-long run, they headlined festivals in a number of countries, playing arenas in others, and become the first group ever to perform at the Louvre Museum in Paris. Two nights later, in the same city, Duran Duran treated fans to a specially created “mega-mix” one-hour set that was filmed in a tiny theatre, with long-time-fan, Mark Ronson.

This rare live performance immediately proved that there was a powerful chemistry between Ronson and the band, and within just a few weeks, a much larger collaboration had developed, with Mark committing to produce the band’s 13th studio album.

Starting out in the late Spring of 2009, at Sphere Studios in London, this much-anticipated Duran/Ronson union flourished, as writing and recording began on an exciting new body of work, which Ronson has boldly stated is the “imaginary follow up to Rio that never was.”

With this newfound partnership, the band was energized and excited by the music they were creating. The result is nothing short of pure Duran Duran brilliance harking back to their classic signature sound which spawned hit record after hit record.

The album features guest vocals/rap from longtime Duran Duran pal/collaborator Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters while Owen Pallett of Arcade Fire contributes the album’s string arrangements.

Always at the forefront of the art scene, the band enlisted the talents of up-and-coming British artist Clunie Reid for the album artwork and packaging. Reid’s work has been recently exhibited at leading UK and US spaces, including the Saatchi Gallery, the Tate and the New Museum in New York. British fashion magazine POP’s creative team will provide graphics and art direction for the project.

The stats on Duran Duran are remarkable: a total of over 80 million records sold, 18 American hit singles, 30 UK chart hits and a global presence that guarantees them huge arena and stadium concert audiences on five continents.

More remarkable still is the way they have achieved this, fusing pop music with art, fashion and technology. When they first broke in the early 1980s, Duran Duran single-handedly transformed music videos from a gimmicky marketing tool into one of the music industry’s most valued assets. With exotic locations, beautiful girls and stunning special effects, Duran Duran took the visual imperatives of the New Romantic movement to another level, defining the MTV generation and building a loyal army of fans who have stayed with them to this day.

Now a seemingly unstoppable force, with no fewer than five prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards under their belt from MTV VMA’s, the Brit Awards, the Ivor Novellos, the Spanish Ondas and Q Magazine, the four original members of Duran Duran are in a category with only a handful of other internationally acclaimed artists.

As this new chapter begins, they have nothing left to prove, but everything to play for. So for them…All You Need Is Now!
