- British-American DJ Mark Ronson released an accompanying soundtrack to his Apple Original docuseries “Watch The Sound With Mark Ronson” on July 30, 2021.
The album features guest appearances from Wale, Diana Gordon, Jónsi, Gary Numan, Paul McCartney, King Princess, Kathleen Hanna and Santigold.
“Watch the Sound with Mark Ronson” consists a new six-part Apple Original docuseries, examines sound creation and the revolutionary technology that has shaped music as we know it.
On Each episode of “Watch the Sound with Mark Ronson”, Mark Ronson explores music's intersection with artistry and technology in candid conversations with music legends and icons including Paul McCartney, Questlove, King Princess, Dave Grohl, Ad-Rock and Mike D from the Beastie Boys, Charli XCX and more, where he discovers the ways in which these unique tools have influenced their work.
Mark Ronson told Apple Music's Zane Lowe, “It is my dream TV show. After a lot of hours and hours of brainstorming and rambling and talking around it, we were just like, 'Let's do six episodes, six subjects — reverb, distortion, synth, sampling, drum machines, and Auto-Tune — and talk about how they revolutionized music and talk to the people who did your favorite stuff on them.'”
He also said of recording with Paul McCartney, “He was going to put acoustic guitar down on ['Alligator' from McCartney's 2013 album New], and he was like, 'It sounds like an acoustic guitar, but I want it to sound like a record, as if you just put the needle down.' That quote has stayed with me more than anything. That quote from Paul McCartney was almost the ethos of Watch The Sound as a show. In music, the most important thing is always going to be the song, the vocal, the performance. But then you go to that next level where you talk about arrangements, sonics, the kick, the snare, the 808. And that's the thing that makes the difference between a really good song and an iconic recording, something we remember forever. Like, when the needle goes down on track one, you're like, “Oh, sh*t.” So that quote from Paul definitely, even though I hadn't thought about it before, is kind of like the symbolic fortune cookie statement of the show.”
