Future Past is the fifteenth studio album by Duran Duran, scheduled for release in various formats in October 2021.

About the Album[]

Co-produced with Mark Ronson, Erol Alkan and Giorgio Moroder, the album was mainly recorded at Assault and Battery Studio #2, in London, UK, between November 2018 and early 2021 (Source). The two-and-a-half year production time was affected by a global pandemic in April 2020; which forced studio facilities to become unavailable for an extended period.

The band first announced the album title on May 19th 2021, while simultaneously releasing the first single from the album called INVISIBLE. Then on August 5th 2021, the band announced the tracklist for the album, and released the second single called MORE JOY!; which features the Japanese Rock band called CHAI. On August 31st 2021, the band released ANNIVERSARY as a promotional single with the full version (which will be on the album) and an edited version (3.39 minutes long), which coincides with the band celebrating 40th Anniversary since they first formed. Then on September 24th 2021, the band released another single TONIGHT UNITED after performing the song on various live performances including on the Sunday before at the Isle of Wight festival where they headlined for that day.

This is Duran Duran's first album to be distributed by the BMG label; the band having worked with seven different labels previously.
