Michael Chabon’s Amazing Adventure into Music

Michael Chabon

Michael Chabon, best known for his novel “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay” inspired British musician and producer Mark Ronson with his newest novel, “Telegraph Avenue” so much, that he asked Chabon to write the lyrics for his upcoming album, as reported by the New York Times. It is perhaps no coincidence that the novel features a collector of old records.

Since Ronson’s offer, Chabon has written half of the lyrics for song on the upcoming album, “Uptown Special.” The album will also feature guest performers Tame Impala, Mystikal and Bruno Mars.

Ronson produced the revolutionary Amy Winehouse album “Back on Black” in 2006, and commented, “The lack of anybody trying to say anything really interested in R&B, pop and soul music at the moment, I find a little depressing. With this album, I want to make something that can sit rightfully on the shelf with my own favorite American R&B, soul, jazz and blues records from the 70s and 80s, when the lyrics were really striving for something.”
