Formed in 1978 in Birmingham, England Duran Duran personified New Wave for much of the mainstream audience. Duran Duran’s reputation was built through music videos, which accentuated their fashion model looks and glamorous sense of style. “Planet Earth,” the band’s first single, quickly rose to #12 upon its spring 1981 release. Immediately, Duran Duran became the leaders of the new Romantic Movement and media sensations in the British music and main stream press. The group’s popularity increased through its cutting edge music videos and the single”Girls on Film became the group’s first Top Ten hit, setting the stage for the release of its eponymous debut album. Their singles, “Hungry Like the Wolf” and “Save a Prayer”, became Top Ten hits which solidified the band members’ status as superstars in Europe.

In 2013, Duran Duran began recording their 14th album, “Paper Gods.” “Paper Gods” was released worldwide on September 11
and bowed at No. 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart, earning Duran Duran its highest charting album in 22 years.
