About this album

Thank You is a covers album by Duran Duran released in April 1995, their follow-up to 1993’s Duran Duran (The Wedding Album). It did well on the charts (reaching number 19 on the Billboard 200),[1] but was received very negatively by critics. In May 2006, Q Magazine listed it as the worst album ever.[2]

The album reportedly began as a lighthearted tribute to the band’s influences in the vein of Bowie’s Pin Ups. The band recorded some tracks in borrowed studios (including Prince’s Paisley Park) while the band was on the Wedding Album tour, with the intent to have an album ready to release soon after the tour’s end. Another studio album was to follow quickly afterwards. However, after a brief break the band set up a portable studio in the south of France to finish the album with producer John Jones, and progress slowed to a crawl. Conflicts within the band and between the band and Capitol/EMI created delay after delay, and mix after mix was ordered and rejected. Duran Duran’s former drummer Roger Taylor, who retired from the band in 1986, joined the band in the studio to play drums on “Watching The Detectives” and “Perfect Day” (as well as a cover of “Jeepster” by T. Rex that did not appear on the album).[3]

By the time Thank You finally appeared in 1995, the band no longer felt enthusiastic about supporting it. Much of the promotional work was done solely by Simon Le Bon and Warren Cuccurullo. The band made videos for “White Lines” and “Perfect Day” (Roger Taylor, who did not tour or do any promotions with the band, excited old fans by appearing in “Perfect Day”), but the videos saw almost no airplay on the MTV or VH1 channels.
