Duran Duran share ‘Black Moonlight’ video and tell us about ‘Danse Macabre’

All press / news

As Duran Duran share the spooky Jonas Akerlund-directed video for ‘Black Moonlight’, the iconic group have told Rolling Stone UK about the creative process behind the elaborate visuals, as well as the genesis ofDanse Macabre – the album from which it is taken.

The group’s sixteenth studio album arrived last month, their 10th UK Top 5 LP, and saw the group taking on a Halloween theme, rather fitting for a record that was released only four days before the main event.

But for all the exploration of the dark and spooky, there’s some lighter collaborators on board too. Nile Rodgers and Mr Hudson can be heard on the record, as well as a selection of guitar lines from Duran Duran’s ex-guitarist Andy Taylor, marking his first work with the group since 2006.
