Producer Mark Ronson stepped out of his comfort zone for his upcoming album Record Collection: In addition to relocating the recording from his native London to Brooklyn, Record Collection finds Ronson penning original tracks and not updating covers like he did on his previous solo album Version. He also swapped out the soul and brass sounds he’s become known for with vintage synthesizer hooks, and even steps in front of the microphone for a pair of songs. “I kind of didn’t mind the way my voice sounded,” Ronson tells Rolling Stone in the Fall Fashion showcase in our latest issue.
Go behind the scenes of Ronson’s fashion shoot in exclusive footage above, which also features his Business Intl. collaborators Alex Greenwald of Phantom Planet, Rose Dougall and up-and-comer Amanda “MNDR” Warner, who features on Ronson’s summer hit “Bang Bang Bang.” In the video, Ronson talks about his Duran Duran-inspired shift to a synth-heavy sound, his fast-paced jet-set lifestyle and working with Q-Tip, Ghostface Killah and Spank Rock along with Brit icons like Duran Duran’s Simon LeBon and Boy George on Record Collection, due out this fall.
