Man after my own heart, Mark Ronson has quashed any speculation as to what he’s been up to with the release of two undeniably funky tracks, featuring industry heavyweights on vocal duties for extra cred.
Recruiting Bruno Mars for Uptown Funk, and Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker for Daffodils, Ronson has hit the ground running ahead of his expected album release in January. Upon listening to the tracks, there’s no denying the super-producer is onto something SERIOUSLY good here. Having truly embraced his love of America’s South, and spending some time in Memphis creating and recording, he’s now ready to show us what he’s got. After the huge commercial success of Mark Ronson & The Business Intl‘s 2010 release Record Collection (which also featured some pretty reputable collaborations; Boy George, Ghostface Killah, D’Angelo, MNDR), his 2015 release, Uptown Special is reaching critical levels of hype!
You can listen to the new tracks below, and join me in praying to every idol I can think of that he returns to Australian shores immediately.
