The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, also known as ASCAP, have selected Duran Duran as this year’s recipient of their Golden Note Award.

The honor will be presented on November 10 at the 2016 ASCAP Awards, London at One Embankment in London. The Golden Note Award is reserved for those artists who have achieved extraordinary career milestones.

ASCAP president Paul Williams said “Duran Duran revolutionised popular music. They are the pioneers of the synthpop and new wave movement and have reached a stratospheric level of success which is rarely seen in the industry. We are delighted to present this extremely unique and innovative group with the ASCAP Golden Note Award.”

“Formed in Birmingham, England, in 1978, Duran Duran is one of the most culturally influential and commercially successful bands of all time, topping the charts around the world over the past three decades and selling more than 100 million records worldwide. The band has been honored with multiple Grammy, BRIT, Ivor Novello, and MTV Video Music Lifetime Achievement Awards, as well as a 20th Century Style Icon award from the City of Milan. Last year, at the 40th Anniversary O2 Silver Clef Awards, they received the coveted Spotify UK Lifetime Achievement Award. Tireless innovators, they are always at the vanguard of music, fashion, art, technology and film – a group with unique and everlasting appeal.”
