NEW YORK, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Eighties supergroup Duran Duran is set to release "Astronaut," in October, its first album of new music since 1985, Rolling Stone reported.
"We were like, 'We can still do this! After 15 some years! How exciting!" Le Bon told the music magazine.
The reunited group recorded the new material in three different stages. They initially got back together in 2002 and spent some time writing new material in the south of France.
After a brief reunion tour last year, the band headed off to England, splitting time between two studios. Most of the new material was recorded in the past few months with Linkin Park producer Don Gilmore, although R&B hit maker Dallas Austen was brought in at the last minute to do some additional work.
