Amy Winehouse's producer, Mark Ronson, claims that even though he's been working with her recently, he has no idea how her third album will sound
Amy Winehouse's producer doesn't even know what her new album will sound like.
Mark Ronson - who worked with Amy on her breakthrough 'Back in Black' album in 2006 - said while he's recently been in the studio with the troubled singer and they recorded a song together for a soundtrack, he doesn't know anything about how her eagerly-anticipated third record will sound.
Mark explained: "We did a song together about six weeks ago for a Quincy Jones soundtrack.
"She came up onstage with my band at London's 100 Club last week and we did 'Valerie'. She's a friend. But I don't know anything about her next album, to be honest."
The producer - whose stepfather Mick Jones is the founding member of British band Foreigner - admitted he wouldn't know how to go about remixing one of the band's iconic tracks.
He added to Q magazine: "Oh man . I mean, 'I Want To Know What Love Is'? 'Waiting For A Girl Like You'? I wouldn't really know how to do it any other way.
"They don't make them like that anymore. Something 25 years old and up always sounds better to me. I call that Lenny Kravitz Disease - but older stuff is a little better."
Mark's third album, 'Record Collection' recorded under the name Mark Ronson & The Business Intl will be released on September 27.
