Duran Duran's "Pressure Off": Listen
Hear their first new single in four years, featuring Janelle Monae and Nile Rodgers.

Duran Duran‘s 14th studio album, Paper Gods, is just around the corner (September 11 to be exact) — and judging by the previously released tunes, it will be a definite must-listen come Fall. The latest to be unveiled is the LP’s title track, which is a collaboration with fellow UK artist Mr Hudson.

The song is a seven-minute long adventure that features blippy synths, sharp guitar riffs and bold vocal tones that amplify the track’s more serious lyrical tone: “Bleeding from paper cuts/ Money for headshots/ Fools leading, who needs it.”

Frontman Simon Le Bon states “Paper Gods” is their most angriest tune on the record, explaining “It’s a song about our obsession, with money, with material things, and how we trivialize our lives, and humanity.”
