Jared Swilley of Black Lips thinks his band’s upcoming new album, produced by Mark Ronson, is the best thing they’ve ever done. And that’s in part down to Ronson being in the studio.

Speaking to, Swilley said: “We really wanted to [work with Ronson]. Just because we’d never worked with a producer before, and we wanted to see what it was like. And it turned out being really awesome”.

Insisting the Ronson influence hadn’t resulted in a “radical departure” from past releases, he continued: “It doesn’t sound like an arena-rock record, or electro or anything. I just think it’s arranged really well and the sounds are really good. It’s not a radical departure, but I think it’s by far the best thing we’ve ever done”.

The release date for the new album is tbc.
