[ # ] Duran Duran donating all their proceeds from Eagle of Death Metal’s Save a Prayer
November 17th, 2015 under Duran Duran


On Friday, the world was shocked as terrorists stormed into Eagle of Death Metal’s concert in Paris and shot it up, killing over a 100 people. We all united and said a prayer for everyone who was there and those who were affected by the attacks.
A few months ago, the California band released a cover version of Duran Duran’s Save a Prayer, and yesterday Simon Le Bon announced on Twitter, “@EODMforNo1 @DuranDuran will donate all proceeds due to us, from this version. Considering options that are useful, peaceful & uniting”
Even though the song has been around for 33 years, it has never had more power than it does today.

UPDATE: Duran Duran issued a statement on their decision to donate all of their publishing proceeds from Eagles of Death Meatal’s cover of their song.

We are honored that the Eagles of Death Metal covered “Save A Prayer,” and included it on their most recent album. In fact, it was a thrill playing the song together recently on TFI Friday in London. We bumped into the band on Friday afternoon of last week, when we were all on our way to Paris on the Eurostar. We were opening Al Gore’s Climate Change concert broadcast there, and they were playing at the Bataclan. What happened that night defies any kind of comprehension. The tragedy that unfolded at their show, and around the city, brought immeasurable sadness to so many and shocked the world. We wholeheartedly support the campaign that the fans have mounted to show solidarity to the band that they love. We will be donating all of our royalties from the sale of this version of the single. There are a number of causes under consideration, all of which are peaceful, effective and unifying.
