First clip from Duran Duran's new album: Listen to 'Blame the Machine'
Dear Roger, Simon, John and Nick. Greetings from the Duran Duran fandom. Oh how we've missed you. Imagine our delight today to hear the first clip from your upcoming album, which should reach our hands by the end of 2010 or start of 2011.
The song is called Blame the Machine, and even though you just gave us a few seconds from it, the tune sounds like it's straight from your glory days of Rio and Seven and the Ragged Tiger. My eternal thanks for abandoning the hideous direction of 2007's Red Carpet Massacre. While you're in a good mood, can I make a few other humble requests?
For starters, how about maybe making amends with Andy Taylor and letting the fierce fivesome do one more world tour? Maybe a stop here in Tampa Bay?
Okay, I'll wrap this up and let you get back to the business of being superstars. In the meantime, I'm going to go read Rob Sheffield's new book Talking to Girls About Duran Duran. But wouldn't it help me more if I could get one of you guys to talk to me about Duran Duran instead? I'm pretty sure that will help me with the ladies more than Rob's book. Just think about it.
Singing blue silver, your fan ... Spearsy
