Lana recruits Mark for upcoming album, “Honeymoon”.
Mark Ronson who has a great track record for producing, is currently riding high with his latest solo album, “Uptown Special”, which includes the catchy single “Uptown Funk” featuring Bruno Mars. Next up for Ronson is likely more production work – and it’s with Lana Del Rey.

In a chat with Q-Tip for Interview magazine, Ronson revealed that he was hitting the studio with Lana.
“I’m going to do some recording with Lana Del Rey today and tomorrow. I found this cool old studio out here,” says Ronson. “I don’t know. She has some songs and I said I had some demo ideas, and if they are any good, then maybe she’ll like them and we’ll go from there,” he added.
Lana’s sophomore album, “Ultraviolence”, which was helmed by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, debuted atop the Billboard 200 albums chart upon its release last June.
Meanwhile, Ronson scored the longest-running No. 1 single of the decade last week when “Uptown Funk!” logged its 13th week at the top of the Hot 100 chart. “Uptown Funk” is now three weeks away from tying the all-time leader, Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day.”
“Honeymoon” is expected to be released sometime before the end of this year.
