Duran Duran is confirmed to collaborate with Justin Timberlake on the track "Night Runner" which is reported to be the first single from the yet untitled album.
British pop rock act Duran Duran is confirmed to collaborate with "SexyBack" singer Justin Timberlake. The band that is still recognized as "The Eighties Band" will do a song titled "Night Runner" with JT.
The collaboration is not only between the two of them but also involves the hottest producer in town, Timbaland plus his protégé Danja. Unlike JT who is doing only one song, Tim and Danja produce two other tracks "Skin Divers" and "Zooming In".
"The actual process of making the album was cool," said Danja. "We just went in there as musicians; I think that's what was beneficial for me, playing those instruments, came into play. Because I had to become a musician, not a producer a beat maker, I had to become a musician and write songs. It was just an easy thing for me, the dudes were real open for me and where I was taking them. It was just a cool experience."
The album that is yet unnamed is expected to be released this September with the first single (reported to be "Night Runner") coming out late June/early July. Meanwhile, the band is confirmed to be the headlining act in Princess Diana's Memorial concert on July 1 and in U.K.'s leg of Live Earth on July 7.
