Silk Sonic, a.k.a. Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak’s latest project, has officially announced the release date of their new album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, on November 12. Also featured on the album is Bootsy Collins as the “special guest host” for the evening. This past March, the duo released their first single, “Leave the Door Open,” which rose to the top of the Billboard 100 charts and stayed in the top ten for 18 consecutive weeks. They also performed the single at this year’s Grammys and at the iHeart Radio Music Awards. Their second single, “Skate,” peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100. Most recently, .Paak and Mars were on the cover of the September issue of Rolling Stone to promote their upcoming album.
According to an Atlantic Records press release, .Paak and Mars began collaborating back in 2017 during the European leg of Mars’s 24k Magic World Tour. They reunited during quarantine to become Silk Sonic, even making the cut as part of Barack Obama’s 2021 summer playlist. With this upcoming release, they’ll surely make next year’s.
