Duran Duran just made your Wednesday afternoon (October 21) that must better with the unveiling of their brand-new music video for "Pressure Off," which features Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers.

The black and white clip, which was shot in both Los Angeles and London, runs a little more than 4 minutes and features the band in front of a white backdrop as they jam out with Janelle and Nile. For the clip, the band reunited with famed English director Nick Egan, and it sounds like the filming process was just as much fun as how the final product turned out.

"We love working with Nick Egan. It's like he becomes a fifth member of the band," says John Taylor. "Nick Rhodes had the jumping idea, based on the photographs of Philippe Halsmann. It’s what the song is about, leaping into the unknown, taking the plunge, seizing the moment."

As for working with Janelle and Nile, John said, "We could not have produced a successful video for the song without them. It's great to be reunited on film with Nile, last time was Notorious in '85. Janelle is just a firecracker, we can’t get enough of her!"

The energetic funk-filled cut is included on the band's Paper Gods, which also boasts an array of collabos with Mr. Hudson, Kiesza and even Lindsay Lohan.
