Duran Duran have dropped a futuristic new video for their recent cover of David Bowie’s “Five Years.”
Directed Gavin Elder, the video features the band accompanied by Bowie’s longtime pianist Mike Garson surrounded by swirling colors as they tear through the track. Elder shot each band member individually across Los Angeles and London, enlisting artist Teek Mach to virtually bring it all together.

The band released the cover earlier this month as part of Just For One Day, Garson’s Bowie tribute that took place on what would have been the late legend’s 74th birthday. “David Bowie’s apocalyptic vision in the song ‘Five Years’ was written almost half a century ago yet it seems ever more poignant today,” keyboardist Nick Rhodes said. “Although it is five years since David left Planet Earth, his vast catalog of songs remain as significant and inspirational as they always have been. Mike Garson’s heartfelt celebration show was a testament to the breadth of influence that David had on other musicians. It was also a display of the deep affection and gratitude for what he gave to us all.” (Info: rollingstone.com)

2021-01-20 | Lifetime Achievement Awards - Nick Rhodes

Few synth players have made a greater impact on British music than Nick Rhodes. As co-founder of new wave legends and national treasures Duran Duran, his classic lines powered early-’80s mega-hits like Rio, Girls On Film and Hungry Like The Wolf, while his trusty Roland Jupiter-4 and Jupiter-8 rode shotgun as the band took on the stadium circuit.
Since then, Nick’s visionary approach to sound has helped Duran Duran to move with the times. Their acclaimed 14th studio album Paper Gods featured some of his most ambitious synth parts to date, while the associated world tour saw him recreate them using the crossover analogue/digital sound engines of the Roland JD-XA. Wherever synth technology goes next, expect Nick Rhodes to be on the front line.
Past recipients of the Roland Lifetime Achievement Award include: Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Thomas Dolby, Jean-Michel Jarre, Omar Hakim, and Phuture's DJ Pierre & Spanky. (Info: roland.com)

2021-01-09 | Five Years

Yesterday Duran Duran released a cover of Bowie’s 1972 song “Five Years.” They performed it live during the global streaming concert, “A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day!”
“When we got the Ziggy Stardust LP and put the needle in the groove, our first taste of its perfection was the song ‘Five Years,'” lead singer Simon Le Bon tells PEOPLE. “I can’t begin to explain how honored I feel for Duran Duran to be given the opportunity to perform this icon, and to place our name alongside Bowie’s for this commemoration of his music.”
