More recently, he helmed Lady Gaga’s acclaimed fifth album, Joanne and Queens Of The Stone Age’s lauded Villains. In 2018 he released a string of singles with Diplo under the name Silk City, including the current world wide hit “Electricity” with Dua Lipa, which earned him a Grammy Award for “Best Dance Recording” in 2019.
He is a co-writer of the song “Shallow,” recorded by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper for the movie A Star Is Born, for which he earned an Academy Award for “Best Original Song,” a Golden Globe Award for “Best Song Written for a Motion Picture,” and 2 Grammy Awards.
Most recently Mark collaborated with Miley Cyrus, Camila Cabello, Lykke Li, YEBBA and more for his upcoming fifth studio album Late Night Feelings, which was released in June to rave reviews.
