Duran Duran has created an exclusive video podcast series that gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the band's latest album Red Carpet Massacre, as well as a glimpse of the creative process surrounding the video "Falling Down." In-studio footage with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland launches this week and will be featured on the front page of MSN Music. Additional podcasts are being released throughout the entire month of May with 4-5 new episodes featured each week. Exclusive backstage interview footage with Nick Rhodes captured by Zune prior to the band's first U.S. tour date in Seattle will be rolling out in weekly installments as well.

Duran Duran fans can link to the band's profile in the Zune online music community through by creating their own Zune Card, a profile that automatically updates to reflect what they or their friends are listening to and provides a vibrant method of music discovery. Zune is the only digital entertainment brand that delivers an all-in-one experience featuring a portable media player, online store + music community, and DRM-free Mp3s. With Zune Pass, consumers can explore millions of tracks for the price of one CD ($14.99) per month.
