Nick Rhodes and John Taylor Announce Tribute Compilation

Duran Duran's Nick Rhodes and John Taylor have compiled Only After Dark, an album paying tribute to their musical influences, which will be released May 1 in the UK. Rhodes says, "As we were developing our own sound, this was the backdrop. John Foxx's Ultravox in particular were important as they were the first to fuse punk with synthesizers and there was a new kind of groove creeping in there too. Bands were moving ever closer to the dance floor... Everything was at a crossroads. Everything was in flux."
