Estimated Arrival: Between Feb 01 and Feb 05. *ETA to USA Only
Duran Duran (commonly known as The Wedding Album) is the seventh studio album and the second self-titled album by English new wave band Duran Duran. It was released on 11 February 1993 by Parlophone.
After dwindling commercial success in the early 1990s, Duran Duran returned to the UK top five and US top 10 with this album, which has been certified Gold in the UK and Platinum in the US. The singles "Ordinary World" and "Come Undone" reached the US top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.
The cover art by Nick Egan features wedding photos from the parents of the four band members.
While officially titled Duran Duran worldwide – the general belief that the alternative name was first adopted by fans post-release, due to the use of the members' parents’ wedding photos on the cover, to differentiate it from the 1981 album, is incorrect. Instead, the name was originally used on two different UK promo cassettes prior to release – one calling it The Wedding & the other The Wedding Album.
While this name was officially dropped before release – with, for example, the UK & US TV adverts calling it simply "Duran Duran" – uniquely, the commercially released UK cassette version still titled it Duran Duran (The Wedding Album) on the tape itself; though this was almost certainly in error.
