"(Reach Up for The) Sunrise" is a song by Duran Duran, the first single from the album Astronaut and their 31st single overall. It was the first single since "A View to a Kill" in 1985 to feature all five of the original members of the band.

Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Michael and Mark Polish (aka the Polish Brothers), and featured each band member on their own journey across various landscapes, only to be joined together on a stage before an intense sunrise for the chorus.

Each band member's storyline was filmed in a different film or digital format, creating a very different look for each set of scenes. Several versions of the video were made available on the Internet, with each version focusing on the storyline of one band member.

The band always plays the Jason Nevins version live in concert. The version on the album also incorporates parts from the Jason Nevins version, to which he is credited in the liner notes on the album.

B-sides, bonus tracks and remixes[edit]

The worldwide B-side was the otherwise-unreleased instrumental "Know It All", along with several remixes of the A-side from Jason Nevins, Eric Prydz, Ferry Corsten and Peter Presta, among others.
