First performance of Ronson's new single
Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars performed new single ‘Uptown Funk’ on Saturday Night Live last night.
The performance, which can be seen above, was introduced by guest host Cameron Diaz. ‘Uptown Funk’ is the first single from Ronson’s new album ‘Uptown Special’, due for release in January 2015.
Ronson previously shared ‘Daffodils’, a collaboration with Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker which will also feature on the album. Parker is understood to feature on three tracks on the album. Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, Hudson Mohawke and DJ Zinc will all feature on the LP, as well as Bruno Mars.
Ronson was also recently rumoured to be working with Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa.
The album follows on from 2010’s ‘Record Collection’ and has been inspired by the New York hip-hop scene of the ’90s.
