It’s been three-years since Mark Ronson put out a solo album, and Ronson fans will remember the last individual longform Ronson production to be 2015’s Uptown Special. Now, Ronson fans need not look to the rearview when thinking of a Ronson only album, but can rather train their eyes on what remains ahead, a forthcoming extended offering rife with “sad bangers,” according to Ronson himself. Informally entitled “The Heartbreak Era,” the incoming project will feature a number of tunes that will expectedly tug at listeners’ heart strings. The melancholic tone of Ronson’s current work in progress stems from the prolific songwriter’s recent divorce from actress Joséphine de La Baum.
BBC described the album as a “futuristic, country-tinged” showing, shades of which figure in Ronson’s latest single, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart.” Featuring Miley Cyrus, the debut song off the album ushers in the aesthetic that will unfold in fuller form as Ronson readies the effort for its impending arrival. The as of yet untitled album will also see musical cameos from Lykke Li, Yebba, and King Princess.
