The new single from '80s rockers Duran Duran, 'Black Moonlight,' is out now.
The second of three new songs from the band's 16th studio album, the band's infectiously funky single, 'Black Moonlight' features friend and frequent collaborator, Nile Rodgers.
Producer and co-founder of seminal disco band CHIC, Rodgers was an early hero of the band; going on to write, co-produce and feature on a string of Duran Duran hits.
Of the recent collaboration, keyboardist Nick Rhodes said: “Nile Rogers is a force of nature. When we get into a room, we start playing, and magic happens."
"Nile always says that CHIC is his first band, and Duran Duran is his second."
The single was also released alongside a spooky AI animated music video, posted to Duran Duran's YouTube today.
The band's soon to be released Halloween album, was catalysed by one special live performance that Duran Duran filmed in Las Vegas on October 31 of last year.
The iconic British group's new LP, will feature three new songs, reimagined Duran Duran classics and a spate of covers; including songs from Billie Eilish, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Rolling Stones, Talking Heads, among many more.
