Receiving praise in equal measures for his work as a record producer and his uncanny ability to wear a suit, Mark Ronson is coming back hard with Record Collection, his follow-up to 2007's excellent Version. If "Bang Bang Bang" is any indication of what is to come, it is apparent that Ronson is taking a more accessible, danceable approach with his new album, dropping those enthralling horns sections that kept me coming back to Version.
Don't be quick to judge though; "Bang Bang Bang" is delightfully catchy. Q-Tip sounds great emceeing a full-blown pop track and newcomer MNDR and her contributions to the track cannot and will not go unappreciated. More on her fantastic solo work later... but now, listen to "Bang Bang Bang".
The single will be out in July, the album is expecting a September release date.
