Full details on the new Mark Ronson album
Mark Ronson's new album Uptown Funk is issued on 19th January. The lead single, and title track, is currently the UK #1.
The majority of the album’s lyrics were written by Michael Chabon, Pulitzer winning author. “I wanted lyrics to push farther than most of what’s going on in R&B and pop today,” says Mark. “I wrote Michael to ask if he’d be interested in writing lyrics for the album.”
Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker sings lead on ‘Summer Breezing’, ‘Leaving Los Feliz’ and ‘Daffodils’, while other contributions come from Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, Mystikal, producer Emile Haynie, Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford, DJ Zinc and Stevie Wonder.
