Mark Ronson: ‘Gaga is a real muso’

Mark Ronson and Lady Gaga’s collaborations may not be out yet, but the producer already wants to schedule more work for the pair.

Mark and Gaga have joined forces for her fifth album, which is yet to hit shelves or be given a title. It’s the follow up to 2013’s ARTPOP, with the blonde singer confirming her new record when she won a Golden Globe earlier this month (Jan16).

“We worked together in London,” Mark told Britain’s Evening Standard newspaper. “I think she’s incredibly talented and kind of a muso at heart beyond all the giant pop hits. I would love to work some more with her – she’s an incredible singer/songwriter.”

After Gaga scooped the prestigious accolade for her role in TV show American Horror Story: Hotel, she told reporters: “You know, I am putting out an album this year. I won’t tell you when, but it is coming out this year.”

Mark stayed equally coy about the project, but is confident the material will be a big hit. For now though, music maker Mark has his sights set on February’s (16) BRIT Awards. The 40-year-old is up for British male solo artist and British producer of the year, and despite winning one of the awards before, he doesn’t rate his chances high at this year’s ceremony.

“It’s amazing to be nominated, especially since we won best single last year (for Uptown Funk),” he smiled. “Even if I don’t win anything at least it’s one more year of sitting at a free table!

“But I have no chance as it’s surely James Bay’s year. He has been the standout artist for me.”

The 2016 BRIT awards take place on 24 February at London’s The O2.
