Duran Duran — Future Past

New wave's hungriest wolves return with their 15th studio effort, enlisting a wildly eclectic pack of cohorts to ring in their 40th (!) year of making music together. Mark Ronson, DJ-remixer Erol Alkan, and ex–Donna Summer collaborator Giorgio Moroder produce; Blur's Graham Coxon co-wrote and plays guitar on several tracks; and David Bowie's former pianist Mike Garson contributes to a moony album closer, "Falling," that would make Aladdin Sane blush. Meanwhile, Swedish pop rebel Tove Lo, Japanese disco punks CHAI, and English YouTuber-turned-rapper Ivorian Doll lend a modern edge to the proceedings. The result is a slick, funky, splashy anniversary bash in which legends mingle with upstarts and the beats never run dry. (Oct. 22) —Jason Lamphier
