Duran Duran's musical 'marriage'

Simon Le Bon has revealed he was "cock-a-hoop" when he was given the opportunity to work with Mark Ronson.

The uber-producer said he'd like to work on the Eighties' band's whole album, All You Need Is Now, after Duran Duran asked him if he'd like to work on a couple of songs when they met him in Paris a couple of years ago.

Frontman Simon, 52, said: "We were jumping for joy. Or cock-a-hoop, as my mum might say.

"Working with Mark was a perfect marriage for us. He's the kind of guy who will push you and ask you to do things you don't want to."

The singer added: "He was telling me about this thing I used to do with my voice that he really liked. It was part of my style but I hadn't done it for years. I didn't consider it very grown-up, basically, but he wanted me to start again.

"He can also walk into the studio, pick up a guitar and play with us too, like a member of the band."

Simon, who is married to supermodel Yasmin, added: "Mark's a real musician. He understands the emotional impact of moving from one chord to another, and you need that if you're going to work with us, because that's what we're into."

In February, Duran Duran celebrated 30 years since the release of their debut single.

The band's new album, All You Need Is Now, first emerged as a download in December, but now gets an expanded physical release to mark the band's 30th anniversary.

Duran Duran begin a UK tour on May 18.
