Mark Ronson Opens Up About How His Divorce Affected His Songwriting

Mark Ronson strikes a pose on the cover of GQ Hype‘s latest digital issue, available now.

Here’s what the 43-year-old musician had to share with the mag:

On how separating from his wife affected his songwriting: “When I had that overwhelming emotion, I could actually feel the connection between my hands and the piano, I knew I was going to get some more interesting chords as it came through. As much as it was not the most pleasant thing to go through, there was a feeling that I might be able to get something good out of it musically.”

On his new record Late Night Feelings: “Late Night Feelings is my first honest record…I reached a point where I was exhausted with trying to make irrefutably ebullient music.”

On why he works so well with women: “I was raised by essentially a single mother and I guess maybe I feel comfortable. I work well with female artists and most of them have complicated lives and this intricate sense of emotion at their core.”
