Today may be Bruno Mars‘ 36th birthday, but he’s given fans a big old gift with the official news that Silk Sonic‘s debut album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, will be released on Friday, November 12th. The dynamite duo of Mars and Anderson .Paak will be joined by funkateer Bootsy Collins on the Silk Sonic project that will provide soulful throwback vibes aplenty if their first two singles are any indication.
Anderson and Bruno debuted Silk Sonic back in March with the release of “Leave The Door Open,” which quickly became the song of spring and summer and is on its way to being song of the year. They followed up that massive hit with the roller skating-themed jam “Skate” in July and have yet to miss a beat.
Silk Sonic are keeping the album’s tracklist and personnel under wraps for now, but we fully expect Bruno and Andy to wow us with something new that we can groove to and more details in the coming weeks. For now, An Evening With Silk Sonic is available for pre-order with the option to purchase a digital download, compact disc, commemorative bronze-colored cassette or limited edition box set with CD and t-shirt.
