Riding High, Mark Ronson Releases "The Bike Song" As Single No. 2
Mark Ronson's Record Collection is shaping up to be another HOT-LIKE-FIRE album for Ronson, who's last album Version still ranks up there in my Top 10 favorite albums of the last few years! First single, "Bang Bang Bang" featuring Q-Tip and MNDR peaked at #5 on the UK Singles Chart and has spent an impressive 5 weeks at the top of the NME Chart! Co-written by Dave McCabe of The Zutons ("Valerie"), follow up single, "The Bike Song" may not be as infectious as it's predecessor, but it's still a groovy good time. Helped in part by a cute little bike bell and a catchy hook by Ryan Falconer (of The View fame) as well as an energetic performance by Spank Rock - "The Bike Song" is a definitely a good choice for a single. The Prophet has it right, calling the song "quirky" and "retro." That describes the sound of this album perfectly. Check out these pics of a platinum blond Ronson filming the video in South London with real life model girlfriend Josephine De La Baume (via The Prophet). Record Collection comes out in the UK September 27th and in the U.S. on October 5th. Maybe I'll get to see him live this time around! Check out "The Bike Song" below.
