Multiple GRAMMY® Award winners Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak teamed up to deliver their funky new musical project, Silk Sonic. Having dropped two singles already, the duo have announced the release of their debut album, An Evening With Silk Sonic.
Having already scored Best Group at the 2021 BET Award for Leave the Door Open, the pair have us waiting on our tippy toes for their full-length release. Their second single Skate cemented the smooth and soulful sonics of their debut ARIA platinum selling single Leave The Door Open, bringing a more upbeat groove to the track.
The duo began flirting with the idea of a collaboration in 2017, when Anderson .Paak supported Mars on the European leg of his 24K Magic World Tour. One late-night jam session on the road unlocked immediate chemistry. Just before the world slipped into quarantine, Mars called Anderson: “Remember that idea we had back in 2017? Let’s do it.” One studio session grew into to a months-long collaboration, culminating the “setlist of doom.” The legendary Bootsy Collins christened Silk Sonic and came in as the “special guest host” for An Evening With Silk Sonic, their forthcoming debut album, due out later this year.
