Mark Ronson shuns trademarks on new album
Acclaimed producer and musician Mark Ronson has revealed his new album differs from his previous releases in several ways.
Speaking to NME, Ronson said his association with brass instruments has become a bit of a running joke over the years.
Indeed, brass proved to be a defining feature of hits such as his interpretation of Valerie by The Zutons.
As a result, he has dispensed with this form of instrumentation on his latest album Record Collection, which includes no cover versions.
However, the album does feature a number of notable collaborations, with Nick Hodgson of the Kaiser Chiefs, Boy George and Zutons frontman Dave McCabe among the contributors.
"I didn't really know anything about what I was going to do on this album, except I knew there would be no horns and no covers," Ronson commented.
Fans will get to hear the new material live when Ronson tours the UK in September and October.
He will perform six dates in Bristol, Birmingham, London, Glasgow, Manchester and Leeds.
