With the CD version of their new album All You Need Is Now out this week, iconic New Romantic band Duran Duran did a concert for VEVO’s American Express-sponsored “Unstaged” series yesterday in L.A. As a bonus, one of our fave artists of 2010, Kelis, joined lead singer Simon Le Bon for vocal duties on “The Man Who Stole A Leopard” and “Come Undone.” David Lynch directed live performance clip, which features creepy floating heads and a hovering radio. Watch below.
“I am very excited about this opportunity to experiment with the band, Duran Duran, at the Mayan Theater,” said Lynch, as quoted by MovieLine.com. “The idea is to try and create on the fly, layers of images permeating Duran Duran on the stage. A world of experimentation and hopefully some happy accidents.”

Sadly, Le Bon did not announce anytime during the evening that he likes to sing “Blue Velvet.”
Duran Duran’s new album was produced by Mark Ronson, and also features a guest appearance by Scissor Sisters’ diva Ana Matronic on the track “Safe (In The Heat Of The Moment).”
