Duran Duran hops to a new beat
By Ken Barnes

In an effort to update their sound, the '80s supergroup has recruited the producer with the Midas touch, Timbaland, and his protege, Danjahandz, to help them with their upcoming album. So far, the dynamic duo have helped Duran Duran produce three songs: Skin Divers, Zooming In and Night Runner, which also features the talents of Justin Timberlake.

This album is Duran Duran's first studio effort in six years, and stepping into the hip-hop realm could be either a really good idea or a very bad one. You can decide for yourself when they perform on July 7 for Live Earth.
