Duran Duran premiere video for Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers collab Pressure Off:

 Duran Duran have premiered the music video for the lead single from their fourteenth studio album Paper Gods.

The Simon Le Bon-fronted outfit, famous for 80s hits Rio, Hungry Like the Wolf, Girls on Film and The Reflex, shared the video for Pressure Off on their YouTube page earlier today.

The funk-licked, electronic rock track features guest services from Tightrope singer and soulstress Janelle Monáe and Chic’s Nile Rodgers who produced the anthemic comeback track with Mark Ronson. 

Paper Gods peaked at #5 and #10 on the UK and US album charts respectively upon its release in September. About the record, bassist John Taylor said that “it really goes back to that strange early Duran mix: the hard-edged pop, coexisting with this dark, weird, experimental side.
