Duran Duran have today confirmed that they have signed an exclusive UK deal with independent sales and distribution company ESSENTIAL MUSIC, to release the full-length physical version of their 13th studio album ALL YOU NEED IS NOW, slated for release March 21st.
Featuring five brand new tracks, the extended LP comes three months after a critically-acclaimed nine song version of the record was released digitally, exclusively on iTunes, and hit the #1 spot on download charts in 15 countries (including the UK).
The new deal, inked by the band today, will see ESSENTIAL MUSIC handling sales and distribution of the 14 track extended album in both digital and physical formats, across all retail and online outlets, including Amazon, HMV direct and Play.com. The release is being co-ordinated by LLM and its founder Joe Cokell, previously business development director at Cooking Vinyl Group and most recently former CEO of Sanctuary Records Group.
The fresh incarnation of ALL YOU NEED IS NOW will be available in CD, vinyl and a special Deluxe Edition CD package, that will include a bonus song “Networker Nation” and a remix of the album’s title track by Youth Kills. A brand new special edition iTunes LP version will also hit the iTunes Store March 21st.
Following the physical release of the full-length album on March 21st, after a long absence from live performances in the UK, Duran Duran, will return to their home market for a series of highly anticipated arena concerts in May 2011.
