Amidst a whirlwind of performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Ellen DeGeneres Show; a wildly imaginative, visually stunning live-stream of a one-time-only show directed by David Lynch; and a run of sold-out U.S. record release shows, fans now have one more way to enjoy Duran Duran's most recent critically acclaimed album ALL YOU NEED IS NOW: on vinyl, as part of a stunning limited collector’s edition box set.
With only 500 copies available worldwide - each individually numbered and signed by the band – this special edition features exclusive artwork created by rising British art star Clunie Reid (Saatchi Gallery, the Tate, New Museum NY), with art direction by UK fashion magazine POP’s creative team, under the direction of fast-rising talent Rory McCartney.
The collector’s edition is available to order exclusively from The Vinyl Factory by clicking here and includes:
• A hand-crafted, transparent black Perspex box with clear face on outer front, providing an artwork frame that can be individually curated by each owner.
• Five heavyweight 180-gram clear vinyl records pressed on the classic EMI 1400, each mastered for vinyl, with the new album pressed across two records, plus an LP of bonus tracks and two 12" remixes (full tracklist below), including the much sought-after David Lynch reworking of Girl Panic !
• Five beautifully treated bespoke record sleeves, featuring remarkable exclusive artwork on both sides by Clunie Reid.
• Exclusive 36-page book with lyrics silver foiled onto black pages, housed in a gorgeous silver mirrored paper cover, each hand signed and numbered by the members of Duran Duran.
• Exclusive 36-page book showcasing Clunie Reid's album artwork, with a die-cut front cover of the band's instantly recognizable D logo.
Alongside this box set, Duran Duran will also be issuing a special 7" version of “Girl Panic !” for Record Store Day on April 16. Limited to 2500 units, the record will include the David Lynch remix of “Girl Panic !,” in addition to the album version, and will be available at all participating Record Store Day retailers. "David's magnificent remix of “Girl Panic !” took us all by surprise," said lead singer Simon Le Bon, "as not only did he manage to infuse the track with the very essence of his own creative genius and signature style but he also brought a new and very film-ic feeling to the song. It's unlike any other remix I've ever heard. We love what he does."
Catch Roger Taylor and John Taylor of Duran Duran at Rasputin Music (2401 Telegraph Avenue) in Berkeley, CA for a very special Record Store Day in-store signing event on April 16 at 1:30pm. The following day, April 17, Duran Duran will get the Coachella crowds moving with a special set at the festival.
