Mark Ronson has opened up further about how he "nearly died" while producing the new Black Lips album 'Arabia Mountain'.

Ronson was hospitalised during sessions for the record after they ate raw liver sashimi at a Japanese restaurant to prepare for recording the track 'Raw Meat'. He and the band were speaking in new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now or available digitally

Co-frontman Cole Alexander said: "To get in the mood to record 'Raw Meat' we started eating all this liver sashimi. Then we all started getting sick from it. Mark had to go to hospital because he was so high. His brain was cooking, man."



Ronson went on to describe his trauma. He said: "I thought maybe I was hungover or something. Then I started shivering uncontrollably. The next thing, the band are putting all these blankets over me. I wake up an hour later, just moaning and groaning."

He continued: "One of them touched my skin and they were like, 'listen dude, we've got to get you to a hospital'. When I was there I was diagnosed with something with a lot of syllables in it – endohinitis, or something like that. I almost died. But I don’t think it was intentional on their part.”
