If I remember correctly, it was mentioned of a single as early as April, in the last Kate with nick.....anyone want to place bets?...... it would be nice to have something this month but I’m not holding out on it.

Well I guess we don't know what is on the horizon, but all I can say is that it would be nice if they have used this year productively. Even if that means getting other people to work on things and they just 'oversee' it. Could be a release of their albums in high res, or a rescan of video material or finding some lost demos. They would just need to give the instruction to do it and they'd not have to do that much really.
Ultimately, they are all still here and full functioning and unfortunately at some point that won't be the case, we are all getting older after all..and if nothing else this virus has shown that unexpected things can happen to any one of us out of the blue. So if now wasn't the right time to preserve their work and legacy, when on Earth would it be?

Rhodes went on to discuss the long-mooted Duran Duran boxset, which he and John Taylor have been talking about since Duran’s only expanded reissue campaign:
We’ve been going through some of the old tapes for the anthology that we’re planning at some point. We found three or four songs from the sessions from our third album that I didn’t even know about. We’d completely forgotten about those songs because everything was such a whirlwind at the time.”
Seven And The Ragged Tiger was recorded at Air Studios in Montserrat with producers Alex Sadkin and Ian Little, but these unreleased songs date back to the initial sessions for the album:
We’d started recording Seven And The Ragged Tiger at RAK Mobile, which we parked outside of a chateau in the south of France. We pretty much scrapped everything from that time and these songs we’ve found aren’t finished. But some of the things that crop up, I think “Yes, these deserve to be finished.”

just the fact that there's been zero buzz since the beginning of this "40th anniversary" year is a very bad sign. fans that have stuck by them for 40 years are getting what? spotify playlists? big deal... the way the band and management are treating this supposed special year is a little offensive frankly.
