Mark Ronson has confirmed he is producing the new Kaiser Chiefs album.
The producer claimed, tongue-in-cheek, that he tried to get his trademark horns on the album but was told it wasn’t an option. Regarding the new album’s sound, he said it was similiar to the “urgency” of Employment, continuing:
“‘Employment‘ is one of my favourite records of the last ten years. There’s that excitement of getting to work on something you’re such a fan of already…Each one of them in any other band would be the funniest member of that band. It’s almost like The Beatles – that razor sharp wit. Sometimes when I’m in the room recording I feel like I’ve won a competition to be the sixth Kaiser Chief.”
