Bruno Mars announces new album; single releasing this Friday

Bruno Mars announces new album; single releasing this Friday


With releases from Britney Spears, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, and Adele, 2016 is shaping up to be a very thrilling year in music and Bruno Mars just announced that he’s getting in on the action! Not only did Bruno confirm his third studio album is complete, the lead single is releasing this Friday!

Titled, “24K Magic,” , Mars’ label said the lead single is pronounced as “24 Karat Magic,” but Bruno just calls it the invitation to his party!

“You can call it my first single, but I call it the invitation to the party,” he wrote to fans on Instagram.

The single art for “24K Magic” has the singer in a signature hat with the Roman Numerals XXIV sewn in black.

Aside from the single announcement, Bruno also revealed the completion of his upcoming album. Though, no release date was announced, we are expecting a late 2016 release. The official date may be released on Friday with the single drop.

Earlier this year, Skrillex said he was working on a project with Bruno Mars, calling it “next level” music. Whether, the track was for Bruno’s album or Skrillex’, we’re expecting some new sounds from the “Grenade” singer this time around.

“I’m actually working with Bruno Mars right now,” Skrillex shared. “I’m not going to give specifics of what it sounds like, but what we’re doing is so f–king different, awesome and next level and sounds like nothing else that’s happened before. Every time I get in the studio with somebody else and collaborate, that’s when I always have revelations and learn about stuff.”

Mars’ bassist, Jamareo Artis, also teased a new sound for the record. Artis gave an extensive interview to Bass Player early last month, where he promised a groove-oriented sound.

“We’ve been working on it for about a year, trying different ideas and experimenting,” Artis told the publication. “I don’t know what’s going to be included in the final version, but it’s going to have a new sound, and so far the material is very groove-oriented. It’ll be out sometime this year, and then we’ll hit the road again.”

Get ready! Bruno is back, baby!
