And since it's been a verrrry long time since hits like "Rio" and "Hungry Like the Wolf" were chart-toppers, Duran Duran hired Amy Winehouse producer Mark Ronson to attract a new generation of listeners.

In this release, the band added five new songs to the nine-track version of “All You Need Is Now," which was released through iTunes late last year.
