EDITORS’ NOTES

When 50-somethings update their sound to modern trends, it risks coming off like a midlife crisis–the sonic equivalent of a Harley Davidson and ponytail. Duran Duran are self-aware enough to carry it off though, even on EDM banger “Last Night in the City”. Top-notch collaborators help, particularly Mark Ronson, Nile Rodgers and Janelle Monáe on robo-disco romp “Pressure Off”, while worldly-wise lyrics and irresistible hooks ensure this is a graceful re-invention.
