(Newser) – An ’80s British rocker, his supermodel wife and a US musical superstar walk into a bar. This is no joke, the Times of London reports: It’s the launch of another Duran Duran comeback.

The "SexyBack" singer and R&B producer Timbaland bring an edgy influence to the pop melodies of Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor. (Guitarist Andy Taylor sat this one out.) The album’s first single, Falling Down, comes out Monday; the album will be released November 19. The band has sold 85 million records since its 1981 debut. (Read more Duran Duran stories.)
