Home Music Novelist Michael Chabon Wrote Almost All the Lyrics to Mark Ronson’s New...

Are you a fan of “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay”? “The Mysteries of Pittsburgh”? Telegraph Avenue”? Then you’re in luck. Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon has written almost all the lyrics to Mark Ronson’s new album album. “Uptown Special” comes out January 13th from RCA.  Ronson, son of Ann Dexter Jones and stepson of Mick Jones of Foreigner, is a popular DJ and producer of Amy Winehouse, among others. He calls Chabon his favorite living writer. There are a lot of great studio musicians on the album, as well as Stevie Wonder on Harmonica. Bruno Mars helped write a couple of the song, too– let’s hope they don’t sound like the Police. Using Chabon is the most interesting idea I’ve heard in a long time.  Can’t wait to hear these songs.
