Mark Ronson And Bruno Mars Get Funky On New Single
Super-producer and pop star team up for vintage-style funk workout...
The song is the first track to be revealed from Ronson's next album Uptown Special.
But while the super-producer's new cut might sound like it could have strutted straight out of Harlem in the 1970s - he has explained that he actually took his influence from the late 1990s.
In a statement released along with the track, he waxed lyrical about his days as a club DJ in the Big Apple around the turn of the millennium.
"No matter how my taste in music and DJ-ing veers over the years, I always find myself coming back to that music I would play out in hip-hop clubs in NY in the late '90s/early 2000s," he explained.
"Biggie, Chaka Khan, Amerie, Boz Scaggs, Missy, Earth Wind & Fire, NORE... Those songs would set alight the dance floor.
"The NY club scene was filled with girls, boys, dancers, drug dealers, rappers, models and skateboarders who came mostly for one reason - to dance.
"And regardless of genre or era, if the song was good - if it had dope drums, if it had soul to it - they danced. Before smartphones, bottle service and smoking bans, people came to the club, found their spot and stayed all night, absorbed in the music.
"With Uptown Special I set out to capture the feeling I remember from those New York nights".
The single will be released on 11 January, with the album following on 26 January.
