Kaiser Chiefs

Mark Ronson has confirmed that he is producing the forthcoming new Kaiser Chiefs album, and has claimed that it will echo the band’s debut album, 'Employment'.

Speaking to BBC 6Music, the producer said that guitarist Whitey had been particularly prominent in the recording process, and his guitar work will shape the sound of the record.

Ronson also joked that the band had veto-ed his suggestion to use his trademark horns on the album.

"They’ve got brilliant songs," he said of the band's new material. "[They hark] back to the urgency of the first album, songs like 'Every Day I Love You Less And Less' and 'I Predict A Riot'.

"The second record was brilliant, but it was more mature and paced. Whitey's guitars on all this stuff are so brilliant. I feel like that energy hasn't necessarily come out on a Kaisers record before.

"There’s no trumpets on it [the new album]. For one song I said, 'You know what would be good on this? Horns.' Ricky [Wilson, singer] was like, 'No'.

Ronson went on to explain how much fun he was having with the band, who he admires greatly. "I'm a huge Kaiser Chiefs fan," he said. "'Employment' is one of my favourite records of the last ten years. There’s that excitement of getting to work on something you’re such a fan of already.

"Each one of them in any other band would be the funniest member of that band. It's almost like The Beatles – that razor sharp wit. Sometimes when I’m in the room recording I feel like I've won a competition to be the sixth Kaiser Chief."
