Duran Duran releases cover of David Bowie’s ‘Five Years’
The band honored the late legend for what would have been his 74th birthday.
“When we got the Ziggy Stardust LP and put the needle in the groove, our very first taste of its excellence was the tune ‘5 Years.’ I can’t start to describe how honored I feel for Duran Duran to be provided the chance to perform this icon, and to position our name together with Bowie’s for this celebration of his music.”
The cover comes ahead of Friday’s virtual tribute, “Simply For One Day,” which also features Adam Lambert, Boy George, Michael C. Hall, Billy Corgan and more.
