get on yer bike
On September 19, Mark Ronson & The Business Intl follow up “Bang Bang Bang”, the spectacular lead single from their forthcoming longplayer, with "The Bike Song".
Monsieur Ronson has enlisted the vocal assistance of The View frontman, Kyle Falconer, and rapper Spank Rock for another quirky, retro number. It ditches the more manic, electronic elements of "Bang Bang Bang" and favors a slightly more organic, indie pop sound.
And, as if by magic, the video for "The Bike Song" has just crash landed. Le clip was shot in Souf London, mate. It stars his supermodel girlfriend, Josephine De La Baume, and has Mark sporting a platinum quiff while riding a bicycle. Natch! I suspect he's been getting peroxide tips from Lord Nicholas of Rhodes while twiddling the knobs on the new Duran Duran elpee.
The whole thing is very Blur meets De La Soul, n'est-ce pas?
"Record Collection" will hit the "shops" on September 27 in the UK and October 5 in the US.
