The collaborations are lengthy on Duran Duran‘s upcoming 14th studio album, Paper Gods. The band will release the album on Sept. 11 and in addition to previously known collaborations with Nile Rodgers, former Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ guitarist John Frusciante and Mark Ronson, the LP features special guests Janelle MonáeKiesza, Mr Hudson, violinist Davidé Rossi and, yes, Lindsay Lohan.

“We found a whole new level of inspiration on this album,” Nick Rhodes said in a press release.

Meanwhile, John Taylor said that the album goes back “to that strange early Duran mix: the hard-edged pop, coexisting with this dark, weird, experimental side.”

“That’s something that’s essential to all of us,” he added. “It’s great to be able to lift people’s spirits – and your own – with a strong shot of pure pop, but the world we live in isn’t all just made of that stuff, so it seems natural to me that we have kept one foot in the darker, more Gothic side of life.”
