Mark Ronson: does Elton want his horns?

Reports suggest that Elton John could be set to recruit Mark Ronson to produce his next album.

Ronson, who recently worked on Kaiser Chiefs' third album Off With Their Heads and is also producing a record for The Rumble Strips, is best-known for helping to shape the old-school soul sound of Amy Winehouse's Back To Black.

Presumably, Elton fancies a slice of this sound for himself - Fox News reports that the album will appear on the Universal/Republic label.

However, rumours such as this one have a habit of not being true, so we'll believe it when we see it.
