JT & Timbaland Collaborate With Duran Duran

 

05 November 2007

80s pop group Duran Duran enlisted the help of Justin Timberlake and Timbaland to record their next album.

The album, 'Red Carpet Massacre' is due for release in the States on November 13.

Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor says they learnt a lot from Justin and Timbaland. "What they taught us was that you had to be quick and that your first ideas are often the best ideas. We have made quite a few albums which were quite long, torturous processes."

You can hear JT singing on the first single 'Falling Down', with Timbaland on three other songs. Producer 'Danja' who produced part of Britney Spear's comeback album 'Blackout' also worked with Duran Duran.

"It's a real collaboration and we haven't really written with that many artists before.... We tend to look at other artists who are happening now and making great records, of which Timbaland and Justin Timberlake have been at the forefront over the past few years."

Meanwhile Timberlake is getting ready for his first sold-out Melbourne concert tonight at Rod Laver Arena!
