Last week Duran Duran announced their new album, Paper Gods, that features Janelle Monáe and Lindsay Lohan and the production work of Mark Ronson and Nile Rodgers. Over the weekend the ‘80s New Wave icons shared “Pressure Off,” which features Monáe and Rodgers, and which sounds like a modern spin on classic Duran Duran (which is all you could really hope for from a new song from the veterans). You can stream it below.

Paper Gods is due out on September 18 in the U.S. (September 11 in the rest of the world) via Warner Bros. Duran Duran recorded the album in London with producers Mark Ronson, Nile Rodgers, Josh Blair, and Mr Hudson. Mark ‘Spike’ Stent mixed Paper Gods. As well as Monáe and Lohan, the album also features guest appearances from former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, Canadian singer Kiesza, Mr Hudson, and violinist Davidé Rossi.
