Mark Ronson has revealed that he and Amy Winehouse are to return to the studio in November to record the follow-up to the Back in Black opus.
The pair worked together on Winehouse's last record, which came out around this time in 2006. Now, they are plotting the sequel:
“As soon as I finish up the Daniel Merriweather record I am going back into the studio with Amy Winehouse to work on her new record,” he told Rolling Stone.
“She is actually dying to go back into the studio already. I was in London last weekend and I saw Amy and we actually talked about maybe finding a studio together.
"She is kind of ready now but we are on tour and she can’t go in November because she is on tour, so we are figuring it out.”
Talking about what the record might sound like, Ronson implied the - in this situation, at least - golden couplet 'Phil Spector'; added to it the phrase 'Wall of Sound' and made DiS lick its collective lips off.
“I think that we can’t do the same thing again — it can’t be like a Sixties element or Motown. If anything, I’d really like to make it sound older or more morbid or like really wall of sound.”
The covers may be wank, but the thought of Ms Winehouse echoing off one of Spector's walls...
