Mark Ronson is set to collaborate with Pharrell Williams on his forthcoming single 'Record Collection 2012'.

Also featuring MNDR, Wiley and Wretch 32, the single will be released on the Kitsuné label on September 5.

The song was originally featured on Mark Ronson and the Business Intl.'s 2010 album 'Record Collection', where it featured vocals from Mark Ronson as well as Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran as well as Wiley.

The new version of the single comes backed with six different remixes from CSS, LOGO, Moonlight Matters, Plastic Plates, DATABASE and Perseus. Ronson has called the remixes "all certified fuckin' bangas."

Mark Ronson also performed with Amy Winehouse's dad Mitch at a tribute concert to the late singer last week (July 28), according to The Sun.

Mitch, a taxi driver turned jazz artist, sang from the crowd throughout the gig and also reportedly went up onstage for one number at London's Jazz After Dark club.

Performing with Winehouse's former bandmate Zalon Thompson, Ronson played tracks from 'Back To Black', the late singer's hit 2006 album which he co-produced with Salaam Remi.

The private gig, which was held at one of Amy's favourite nightspots, was attended by family and friends including Kelly Osbourne and broadcaster Nick Grimshaw.

The gig was Ronson second tribute gig to his "musical soulmate" in a week - he appeared onstage with 'Valerie' writer Dave McCabe from The Zutons at Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich the previous night (27).
