on his 4th album, ronson Teams up with Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, Hudson Mohawke & Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford for a cracking collection of dance-pop numbers, set to rival daft punk's 'random access memories' for feel good factor.

written & produced with Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Drake, Alicia Keys), The majority of the album’s lyrics were written by the Pulitzer winning author Michael Chabon. “I wanted lyrics to push farther than most of what’s going on in R&B & pop today,” says Mark. “I wrote Michael to ask if he’d be interested in writing lyrics for the album.” To his surprise, Michael, a huge pop fan, said yes and quickly became immersed in the project. crucial to the sound of the album is Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, who sings lead on ‘Summer Breezing’, ‘Leaving Los Feliz’ & the ethereal ‘Daffodils’. The wonderful cast of characters also includes Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, Mystikal, DJ Zinc &.....Stevie Wonder!
