We caught up with Mark at V Festival to talk about playing live, production and the beauty of a real horn section.

Confirming his status as music's most heavyweight visionary, critically acclaimed Mark Ronson returns on October 15th with the stellar new single `Valerie'. Featuring the powerhouse vocals of eminent songstress Amy Winehouse, it's a blazing, bold revival of the dynamic Zutons track and follows the smash-hit singles `Oh My God' & `Stop Me'.

The third song to be taken from his gold-selling LP `Version', `Valerie' kick-starts with irrepressible attitude before fast-tracking into a big band chorus of chiming bells, saxophone and Motown purr. Available on Maxi CD, 10" vinyl and to download with a host of bonus material, it also includes the video, which was directed by Robert Hales (Stereophonics, Justin Timberlake, Scissor Sisters).

One of the definitive albums of 2007, `Version' is a thoroughly modern masterclass. Hailed as "little short of a miracle" by The Independent, it's also one of the Top 20 best-selling LPs of the year. After debuting in the UK charts at Number 2, it spent its first 4 weeks in the Top 10 and was certified Gold with sales of 200,000 in less than one month.

Internationally renowned as one of the world's finest DJ/producer's, Mark's production credits over the last year include: Amy Winehouses' Number 1 LP `Back To Black', plus Christina Aguilera, Robbie Williams, Ghostface Killah, Lily Allen & his Allido protégé Rhymefest. More recently, he created a landmark remix of Bob Dylan's 'Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine)' - the first time ever a producer has been allowed to mix a Dylan track.

Fresh from impressive live sets at Glastonbury, V & Wireless, Mark will also wow crowds at Creamfields with his 10-piece band. The eagerly awaited appearance has seen the festival score their highest ticket sales - ever. Mark has also announced a national UK tour for October. The full list of dates are:
