Once again, information seems to have gotten out of the bag before it was intended…contrary to yesterday’s interview with Mark Ronson (as well as the MTV blog) that King of Nowhere was to be the title of the next album, officials from Duran Duran are saying that is not the case.
Ultimately, you and I will not know the album title until it comes out…but this kind of back and forth is very typical of Duran Duran in general. It’s almost laughable at this point because every time a piece of information gets “out” before management can decide to cross the T’s and dot the I’s, inevitably management will come out with a “That has yet to be released” statement to negate whatever piece of information was released without their say-so.
You would think that after so many years in this business, they would know to react faster (it’s been a full 24 hours since the blog and video were publicized), and you would also think that they’d have mentioned it to Mark Ronson….but hey, maybe not.
So, while I am absolutely not going to pull my prior blog from earlier today…. I do have to say that at least for now, we’re not sure what the album title will be.
I wonder if the band knows!
