Markie Mark Ronson will be back with another funky bunch of tunes in the near future. But you shouldn’t expect another ‘Uptown Funk’, these songs will all be sad.

That’s a result of the people who he decided to collaborate with this time, he tells the BBC. “More so than choosing a person for a musical style”, he explains, “they were all like-minded people, or people who were going through some traumatic personal stuff”.

It wasn’t that he didn’t try to make some more chirpy tracks, he adds: “I tried doing some other music … but the only stuff that started to stick was the stuff that moved me and made me feel melancholy. Once I had two or three of those, I started to see all this as an album”.

The album’s first single, Miley Cyrus collaboration ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’, is set to come out tomorrow.
