Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak Cover Rolling Stone / Reveal Silk Sonic Album Is Now Set for 2022

Published: Wednesday 18th Aug 2021 by Sam

Fans of Silk Sonic will have to ‘Leave The Door Open’ a little longer. Because delivery of Bruno Mars and Anderson. Paak‘s hotly-anticipated collaborative album has been pushed to 2022.

Full story below…

The news was revealed in a new Rolling Stone cover feature on the potent pair.

Per the piece, ‘An Evening With Silk Sonic’ was initially set for release this Fall. However, it’s been bumped to January 2022.

It’s not because the project isn’t complete. Word is that it nearly is. Rather, the duo wants to release more singles – following chart-topper ‘Door’ and recent effort ‘Skate.’

Mars explained that he wanted to allow each track to breathe before the album, saying “I don’t want to be binge-watched.”

Elsewhere, they said of the LP:

“We’re really in touch-up mode now. We’ve got the bones of most of the album, so it’s really about touching up parts that need a little more.…grease.” 

.Paak added:

“Which could mean redoing the song from scratch!”

And they aren’t joking. Because Mars mused on their feeling-based approach:

“We had a record that was, I guess the word is ‘heavier’ content, as far as subject matter. Me and him were harmonizing and singing the shit out of it, but I remember having a conversation, saying, ‘Man, I don’t know if we want to take this turn on this album.’ We’re producing a feeling, and an emotion, so let’s sleep on this. After the session, Andy went to his house, and I’m playing the record, and I go to this song and I say, ‘I gotta stop by Andy’s.’ I drive over there and tell him, ‘Come outside.’ He gets in the car, I press play, and immediately he says, ‘Turn. That. Sh*t. Off.’” The track went in the trash that night. “We’ve been working on this song for weeks, but hearing it outside the walls of the studio, it was that quick,” Mars says. “‘I don’t wanna feel like this! Why are you guys making me feel like this?’” 

Speaking on how the venture came about, Paak said:

 “I’m not sure we would have done it if it wasn’t for the pandemic. It was tragic for so many people, but Bruno would have probably been on the road, me too — but we had to be here.”

Mars echoed similar sentiments about the easy-therapeutic-magnetic anchoring of the team-up:

“I don’t know what year it is. I’m not looking at the charts. So we’d just come here every night, have a drink, and we play what we love.”

    So it took them nearly 5 months to drop another song only for them to push it back even more? Do they not realize this isn’t 2004 anymore? People want content. People aren’t gonna be that patient. These artists really act like they’re making the next Thriller or something

    Smart idea. Wait around til the Grammys to release it because we know “Leave the Door Open” is gonna clean house.

  10. Abel August 18, 2021

    Trash. Bruno 4ft 2 Mars.

  11. Charli Cheer Up August 19, 2021

    That’s such a super long wait like come on..are they afraid that it will flop if it drops in 2021? They better have some great singles lined-up for the rest of this year otherwise the steam for Silk Sonic is gonna run dry by 2022 as some of the songs released on that album are 2 years late.
