Mark Ronson producing for other acts

Mark Ronson wants to "produce a couple of records for other people".

The 39-year-old musician is hoping to work with other acts in the coming months, following the release of his fourth studio album 'Uptown Special' earlier this year.

Speaking about his plans for the future, he told BANG Showbiz: "I'm just going to be doing shows this summer - just doing DJ sets and playing live with the band. I'm doing some festivals.

"I think I'll probably produce a couple of records for other people because it usually takes me a bit of time to put my own albums together, I have to get the ideas together. I'm not confirmed to work with anybody."

The 'Uptown Funk' hitmaker insisted he isn't feeling pressure to live up to his chart-topping single in the future however, and will just go into making the collection with an open mind when he feels ready.

He explained: "There's no point in trying to top 'Uptown Funk'. It came from jamming the sort of music we love, me and Bruno (Mars). I just will try and approach the next record in the same way, make music that I love, and then the public will decide whether it's a hit or not."

Mark - who wed model and actress Joséphine de La Baume in 2011 - confessed his gruelling touring schedule has exhausted him recently, but he keeps upbeat thanks to boxing sessions.

He said: "I don't know how I look so good. All the late nights shouldn't have anything to do with it.

"I like boxing and exercising and stuff like that, but when it comes to yoga I'm useless."
