Mark Ronson is Working On Lana Del Rey’s New Album


“Uptown Funk” producer, Mark Ronson, has confirmed that he’s working with Lana Del Rey on her forthcoming third LP.

Mark Ronson, who alongside collaborater Bruno Mars recently set the record for most weeks spent at #1 on the Hot 100 this decade, has confirmed rumors that he’ll be working on the production of ‘Honeymoon’ with “Video Games” star, Lana Del Rey.

In an interview with the aptly named Interview Magazine, the celebrity DJ had this to say about his upcoming work with Del Rey:

“I’m going to do some recording with Lana Del Rey today and tomorrow. I found this cool old studio out here… I don’t know [if the songs will end up on her album]. She has some songs and I said I had some demo ideas, and if they are any good, then maybe she’ll like them and we’ll go from there,”

As you can see, it’s all a little vague at the moment but this is undoubtedly good news for Lana. Although he may only be known State-side for his retro-funk stylings, the English musician has been producing sombre dance music for the better part of a decade across the pond. The likes of “Stop Me”, featuring Daniel Merriweather, Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” and this particularly bizarre version of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” are all representative of some of Ronson’s best work and sounds that he’d do well to emulate with Lana Del Rey.

Lana has promised a return to the sonic landscape of her first two offerings, ‘Born To Die’ and its subsequent re-release; undoubtedly a producer like Ronson would be well placed to help her capture that kind of gloomy pop magic.

What do you think? Are Mark Ronson and Lana Del Rey a good combination?
