The world is once again, goo-goo for Gaga.

Fresh off the Marc Jacobs runway and the Bowie tribute at the Grammys, she’s heading into the recording studio with Mark Ronson to bring the world a follow-up to Uptown Special.


As i-D points out, the two grew up in the same historically depressed, decrepit “Uptown” neighborhood in New York City and were basically destined to make music together at some point.

“I grew up in New York on the Upper West Side, she did too,” he points out. Saying that he respects her a lot because she is an old-school musical pro, Ronson added, “She loves just sitting at a piano and barking orders at a drummer and she has an incredible voice.”


Half of music is just knowing how to treat the drummer anyway! Here’s a Ronson-produced Wale track Gaga guested on in 2009.
