Among their accolades are nine gold records, six platinum records, three multi-platinum records, eight lifetime achievement awards, two Grammy awards, two Ivor Novello awards and two Brits.
Fusing art, technology and fashion with their unique brand of music, singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor and drummer Roger Taylor are always innovating.
On October 22, Duran Duran released their 15 studio album, Future Past featuring exciting collaborations with Mark Ronson, Graham Coxon, Tove Lo, Mike Garson, Ivorian Doll and CHAI.
The record, which is now among their highest charting releases in the UK, was produced by Erol Alkan and Giorgio Moroder.
In October they revealed they were working on a biopic of the band, following the success of similar films.
Bohemian Rhapsody, about rock band Queen, grossed more than £658 million, while Sir Elton John film Rocketman made about £146 million.
