LondonWhen British pop band Duran Duran made their debut, they did not know how long they would last. But 40 years on, the new wave group are still going strong, releasing their 15th studio album, "Future Past", on Friday.

"We would never have expected to be still making music together after all this time.
We were just kids and we came together in punk rock," bassist John Taylor told Reuters."(In) the late 70s where nobody was thinking long term, it was like, could we just play next year?"
    Formed by Taylor and keyboardist Nick Rhodes in 1978, Duran Duran rose to fame with hits such as "Girls on Film" and "Rio".
      The band, with lead singer Simon Le Bon and drummer Roger Taylor, has sold more than 100 million records worldwide and won two Grammy Awards.Read MoreTheir new song "Anniversary" celebrates the 40 years since they released their first album in 1981.Duran Duran releases cover of David Bowies Five Years "'Anniversary' is a song that kind of celebrates the time that we've been together as a band, but it's also open to everybody and anything anyone might want to celebrate," Taylor said.For their new release, the band collaborated with producers Erol Alkan and Giorgio Moroder, while Blur guitarist Graham Coxon, Japanese punk band CHAI and rapper Ivorian Doll, among others, feature in an eclectic mix of tracks."We set our parameters very broadly from the very beginning. Our first album had dance songs on it ... but it also had a six, seven minute instrumental with an orchestra and some darker songs," Rhodes said."We always feel comfortable trying out different things in different genres musically."
        The group began work on the album in late 2018 and worked on it sporadically in 2019. The Covid-19 pandemic forced them to stop for about 10 months."In some ways it was actually advantageous to have had a break because we'd never had that experience before, and we could look at it with fresh eyes and listen with fresh ears," Rhodes said. "It's got a whole new feel for us."

        Hollywood Christmas parade returns Sunday after 2020 COVID cancellation

        HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- After a hiatus in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Hollywood Christmas Parade returns Sunday night, moving through the streets of Tinseltown with its 89th edition to mark an unofficial start to the holiday season -- though one still being celebrated in the shadow of COVID.

        Sheryl Underwood, a host on the daytime show "The Talk,'' will serve as grand marshal of the parade, which begins at Hollywood Boulevard and Orange Street. The 3.2-mile, U-shaped route will travel east on Hollywood Boulevard to Vine Street, turn south on Vine to Sunset Boulevard and then head west along Sunset, back to Orange.

        The parade, featuring an estimated 5,000 participants, kicks off at 6 p.m., with Erik Estrada, Laura McKenzie, Dean Cain, Montel Williams and Elizabeth Stanton returning as hosts.

        "For almost a century, the annual Hollywood Christmas Parade has been lifting the spirits of Angelenos from all walks of life,'' said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. After a difficult year and a half, I am excited Angelenos will get to enjoy this parade once again.''

        In all, 61 celebrities and VIPS were scheduled to take part, including musicians Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. of The Fifth Dimension, and actors Danny Trejo, Tom Arnold and Lou Ferrigno, as well as Jerry Mathers and Tony Dow from early TV's "Leave It to Beaver.''

        The parade will also feature 11 character balloons -- each some four stories high -- plus equestrian acts and marching bands, including the U.S. Marine Corps Band out of San Diego; the Mira Costa High School Marching Band and Color Guard from Manhattan Beach; the PAVA World Traditional Korean Band from Los Angeles; the Los Angeles Police Emerald Society Pipes and Drums; and the Los Angeles Catholic Schools Band from Torrance.

        In addition, spectators will see 49 movie and TV cars, including "Back to the Future'' DeLoreans, the "Ghostbusters'' Ecto-1 and "Smokey and the Bandit'' Trans-Am; and from TV, the "Munsters'' coach, the "Rockford Files'' Firebird and the "Magnum, P.I.'' Ferrari.
