Mark Ronson's Version

Hipster DJ turned producer, Mark Ronson, is the man behind two of this year's hottest albums: Amy Winehouse's Back to Black and Lily Allen's Alright, Still (he also worked with Robbie Williams and Christina Aquilera on their latest efforts). In his spare time he's been working on his own sophomore release Version, due out April 6. The album is an eclectic mix of covers featuring an even more eclectic mix of artists and includes a brilliant version of The Smiths "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" featuring Daniel Merriweather (whose Ronson produce album is due out next year) and Britney I'm-Country-Y'all Spear's "Toxic" featuring Ol Dirty Bastard and Tiggers. Some interesting stuff for sure. You can hear both these tracks on Ronson's MySpace and other tracks - including Santo Gold singing The Jam's "Pretty Green" and Lily Allen singing Kaiser Cheifs "Oh My God" - are available on his website. Also check out his "Authentic Shit" podcast via East Village Radio.
