Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars groove out with Uptown Funk
Bringing us to the dance floor is the first single from Mark Ronson’s forthcoming full-length album Uptown Special, being released on January 27, 2015 via RCA Records. Ronson will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on November 22nd, performing "Uptown Funk" with Mars along with an additional track from the new album featuring another very special guest. This is Ronson’s first performance on the famed late night NBC show.
Uptown Special, Ronson's fourth album, was written and produced with GRAMMY® -winning producer Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Drake, Alicia Keys) over 18 months in studios in London, Memphis, Los Angeles and New York City. The majority of the album’s lyrics – although not the lead single with Mars - were written by Pulitzer-winning American novelist Michael Chabon. Ronson's favourite living author, Chabon became a part of the songwriting process early on and was fully immersed in the album’s narrative creation, often working with Ronson and the vocalists in the recording studio.
