LG5 is coming soon, but details are scarce! That’s why our little monster hearts exploded when Mark Ronson gave us a little more detail on Gaga’s fifth studio record.
Known for his work with Christina Aguilera, Adele, Lily Allen, Paul McCartney, and Amy Winehouse among others, Ronson has been working with Lady Gaga on what he calls her “most authentic work yet.”
“I’ve been working for the past few months with Lady Gaga on her upcoming record and I’m just blown away by her talent, her voice,” Ronson said in a recent interview. “She’s a Muso at heart. She’s the happiest when she’s sitting at a piano barking orders at the drummer, and I don’t think that’s the side of her the world has seen. They’ve seen the massive pop singles, tours, and dance numbers, so it’s really great to make this very honest, authentic, analog kind of record with her.”
The Ronson X Gaga duo haven’t exactly been shy about working together. Aside from the near-constant Instagram teases, the two recently performed a short set at the Met Gala in New York City. Mother Monster even shredded on the electric guitar during a cover of The Talking Heads’ “Burning Down The House.”
Last year, Ronson was awarded his first number one single with his Bruno Mars collab, “Uptown Funk.” The track went on to tie for being the second-longest-leading number one single of all time, spending 14-weeks at number one! Though, tied in a seven-way tie for second, “One Sweet Day” by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men is the only song to beat “Uptown Funk” with 16 weeks at number one.
Weeks at No. 1, Title, Artist, Date Reached No. 1
16, “One Sweet Day,” Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men, Dec. 2, 1995
14 (to date), “Uptown Funk!,” Ronson feat. Mars, Jan. 17, 2015
14, “I Gotta Feeling,” the Black Eyed Peas, July 11, 2009
14, “We Belong Together,” Mariah Carey, June 4, 2005
14, “Candle in the Wind 1997″/”Something About the Way You Look Tonight,” Elton John, Oct. 11, 1997
14, “Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix),” Los Del Rio, Aug. 3, 1996
14, “I’ll Make Love to You,” Boyz II Men, Aug. 27, 1994
14, “I Will Always Love You,” Whitney Houston, Nov. 28, 1992
As of now, Ronson seems to be the main producer on LG5, but Dj White Shadow, Elton John, and RedOne are also taking part on the record. With a team like that, LG5 is sure to be some of Lady Gaga’s best work, but still no darn release date!
