[ # ] Duran Duran releases their first song with Andy Taylor since 2006
September 21st, 2023 under Duran Duran

Duran Duran started out as a quintet with Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor, Roger Taylor, and Andy Taylor (no relation). But then Andy left the band in the mid-’80s. Only to return for a bit 20 years later. But he left again in 2006.

Last year, Duran Duran was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and they started communicating again. So much so that they asked him if he was interested in strumming on a few of the songs for their new album. And he said yes.

And today, we got to hear the Fab Five together again on the single Black Moonlight. Along with playing the guitar, Andy did some of the sound engineering on the track.

The band has changed their sound over the decades, but the feel is the same. And having Andy back feels like home.

We are grateful that he is making such strides in his stage 4 prostate cancer battle and that he was able to record with his mates. Hopefully, not for the last time. And hopefully, we won’t have to wait another 20 years for it to happen.

Duran’s new album, Danse Macabre, comes out on Le Bon’s birthday, October 27th. Can you tell I am Duranie?
