Nina Hossain and Duran Duran

Duran Duran have released a new album today – and it includes the voice of ITV News’ Nina Hossain.

Simon Le Bon (a member of the group) personally invited Nina to appear in two tracks of the brand new album:
-She appears as reading the news in one track
-She also appears as a sat nav voice

Nina said: “It was all incredibly exciting as I ended up dueting with Simon Le Bon in the recording studio. There were a lot of jealous colleagues at work.”

“An email came in the summer from Simon Le Bon asking if I could help them out. It was the best thing I’ve ever done apart from having my children.”

Nina has been a fan of the group since she was nine. The album is available to buy exclusively on iTunes right now.
