Producer Mark Ronson tonight gave Duran Duran fans their second taste of the band’s forthcoming All You Need Is Now, premiering the track “Being Followed” — part of it, anyway — on his East Village Radio show, just as he played a bit of “Blame the Machine” back in July. You can hear the first 90 seconds or so (repeated, in fact) in the clip above, with Ronson doing the obligatory voice-overs.
The track is slated to appear on the band’s long-in-the-works 13th studio album, which is expected out in early 2011, although an actual release date has yet to be announced. In the meantime, the band has announced a five-date tour of South Africa in December that will open the “enormous global campaign” surrounding the new album.
