So, my boy Mark Ronson's new album "Record Collection" has been slated for release this summer (or early fall). From what I am reading and hearing, it sounds a lot less Motown and more Silicon Valley. Incorporating that 8-bit sound, digital voice shifting and his gift for sick power-pop tempos, this album should continue Ronson's innovative, award winning and popularly successful production track record.
Oh, and he's singing on it too.
I mentioned Zelda, because this video for the song "Circuit Breaker" has been released, and it features a very Link-esque character in some very Nintendo-ish game play. Check it out:
Rumored collaborating artists on the album include Santigold, Scissor Sisters, MNDR, Q-Tip, Rose Eleanor Dougall, Spank Rock, Ghostface Killah, Boy George and Miike Snow. Unlike his last album "Version", this album will not be covers of classics, but all original works. Judging by the talent listed above, the songs will come from a range of different genres and musical styles.
I'm excited, and you should be too. Check out "Verison" if you want in the mean time.
