Mark Ronson is releasing a new album, Late Night Feelings, tomorrow (June 21) via Sony. Now he has shared one last pre-release song from the album, “True Blue,” and it features the guest vocals of Angel Olsen. It starts with distorted old-timey vocals from Olsen, but then turns into a dreamy disco gem. Listen to it below.

Olsen had this to say about the song in a press release: “I wasn’t sure what it would be like to work with Mark, considering we are both from different production worlds…but it was such a fun, organic experience for me. Seriously. He gave me full reign to try things out - I even play a little guitar on the track (not that I’m a virtuoso player or anything). At the time I’d been listening to a lot of dark disco, specifically Nico’s dance version of ‘Heroes.’ I wanted to make something dark like that, but also something people could skate to. A true roller rink song. Hearing the final track back was so rewarding for me. I can’t say it enough. I hope to play it live! I’m excited to hear the record in its entirety.”

Previously Ronson shared Late Night Feelings’ title track, “Late Night Feelings,” which features the guest vocals of Lykke Li and was one of our Songs of the Week, as well as a video for the song. Then Ronson and Li stopped by the British talk show The Jonathan Ross Show to perform the song. Ronson also shared “Pieces of Us” (featuring King Princess) “Don’t Leave Me Lonely” (featuring YEBBA), “Find U Again” (featuring Camila Cabello), and “Nothing Breaks Like A Broken Heart” (featuring Miley Cyrus).

Late Night Feelings is said to be Ronson’s album of “sad bangers.” Ronson’s last album was 2015’s massively successful Uptown Special, which featured the Bruno Mars collaboration “Uptown Funk,” one of the best selling singles of all time (its video currently has 3.5 billion views on YouTube). Since then Ronson also teamed up with Diplo to form Silk City, who released four singles last year, with “Electricity” (feat. Dua Lipa) becoming a hit.
