Two members of Duran Duran will release a compilation in their homage to musical influence that helped to develop their band' early sound
In their effort to pay tribute to the musical influences that helped to define their band, Duran Duran, two founders of the group, keyboardist Nick Rhodes and bassist John Taylor are going to release a compilation on May 1 in the United Kingdom. Entitled "Only After Dark" and planned to be launched under EMI records, this piece of work will feature 18 tracks of the glam rock, post-punk and electronic music that played important parts in developing Duran Duran's early sound.
In the meantime, the album's art will combine the images from photographer Paul Edmond's "Duran Duran Unseen" which chronicles the band's 1979-1982 Birmingham scene.
