Comments Off on Album Stream: Mark Ronson ‘Uptown Special’
Less than a year after Pharrell brought soul-funk back to the masses with his G I R L LP, Mark Ronson carries the torch into 2015 with his brand new album, Uptown Special. Reinventing the groovy pop music of decades gone by, the 11-track project boasts contributions from Stevie Wonder, Jeff Bhasker, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and Bruno Mars, who co-stars on the current No. 1 single, “Uptown Funk.” Special mention to Mystikal for channeling the soul of James Brown on “Feel Right,” too.
Uptown Special is available to pre-order on iTunes ahead of its release tomorrow (January 13).
