Black Lips Team With Mark Ronson For New Album
Instead of producing themselves, as they had previously, or employing a producer known for garage-punk sounds, the group instead enlisted the help of slick British producer Mark Ronson (Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse, Kaiser Chiefs). Bassist/singer Jered Swilley told Pitchfork how the unlikely collaboration came about.
"We've always self-produced all of our own stuff," he said. "Just done it with just us and an engineer. Over the years, Vice had suggested working with a producer. We would always throw out names. Mark worked with them on that Creators Project. During that, they mentioned it. He seemed into it, and we were into it, so it fell in place." - more on this story
