Duran Duran have revealed that work on their new album is going "spectacularly well".
The group recently teamed up with producer Mark Ronson for the record and praised his contribution.
"Mark did a DJ edit for us in Paris last year, which he then told us to play live," keyboardist Nick Rhodes told the Daily Star. "It worked well and so we talked about recording an album. So far it’s going spectacularly well."
Ronson admitted that he was hoping to capture the musical spirit of the group's early recordings. "Weve been unearthing all the tricks they pulled off from 1982," he said.
"Nick is using synths he hasn't touched since 'Hungry Like The Wolf'. I'm like a fan, it's what I would want to hear from a Duran Duran record."
The band have released thirteen studio albums since 1981, including chart-topper Seven And The Ragged Tiger. Their last LP Red Carpet Massacre was released in November 2007
