The music video is set to the tune "Anniversary," the fourth track from the band's latest album, "Future Past," released on October 22nd, 2021.
"Early into the pandemic, I discovered that Duran Duran bassist John Taylor had COVID, recalls Los Angeles-based video director Alisa Daglio. "I realized that this virus could potentially end my dream to one day direct a music video for Duran Duran, so I made the dream happen for myself."
The all-toy "Anniversary" track music video was shot mainly on a Red Dragon camera and features the Duran Duran vinyl figurines in Los Angeles, The Salton Sea, Las Vegas, Tucson, London, and Stonehenge.
Daglio offers, "I created the video as a way of saying thank you to Duran Duran for inspiring my career path as a director. I wanted to give Duran Duran fans and the band a reason to smile during these tumultuous times. The world could use a little extra joy right now." Watch the video below:
