Black Lips: ‘We secretly drank champagne from Mark Ronson’s Grammy Award’

US band admit to larking around with new producer

The Black Lips‘ singer Cole Alexander has revealed how the band raided new producer Mark Ronson‘s awards cabinet before actually meeting him.

Alexander said he even drank champagne from one of Ronson‘s Grammy Awards while his friends were house-sitting for the producer.

“A couple of my friends invited me over to his house when they were house-sitting before I even met Mark,” Alexander told Spinner.


“We were going through his Grammys and so my friend poured some champagne into the Grammy cup and we started drinking out of it. It was like the fountain of youth but the fountain of Grammy — like, I knew when I tasted out of there, I was going get me one of these, like, ‘We gotta work with this guy.'”

True to his word, Alexander and the rest of Black Lips did end up working professionally with Ronson, with their new album ‘Arabia Mountain’ being produced by him. The album is set for a June 6 release.
