350 copies only.
Duran Duran have teamed up with renowned Los Angeles artist Alex Israel, under the the creative direction of China Chow, to create an extraordinary limited edition of their new album, Paper Gods.
The album will be released as four 12″ white vinyl records in bespoke sleeves, housed in a custom-made magnetised clamshell box set.
The package features seventeen kiss cut magnets, four art prints screen printed on Rainbow mirri board, and a thirty-six page booklet printed on 150gsm silk paper stock. Also included is an individually numbered certificate, hand signed by the band and Alex Israel.
Israel, whose paintings, films and sculptures are known for their depictions of Hollywood as “the world’s primary desire factory”, created Paper Gods’ original artwork. The album cover – a reproduction of Israel’s Sky Backdrop painting paired with a collage of images representing various stages of Duran Duran’s storied career – takes on new life in this box set incarnation.
The ultimate collector’s item, this is the only product gathering the complete set of songs recorded for the Paper Gods sessions, including exclusive versions of ‘Pressure Off’ and the previously unreleased track ‘As Seen From A Distance’.
