Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak took to social media to announce that they have formed a new band, Silk Sonic, and the band’s first music will be out on Friday (March 5).
“We locked in and made an album,” Mars tweeted. “The band’s called Silk Sonic. First song drops next Friday 3/5.”
The album features Parliament Funkadelic bassist Bootsy Collins as a “special guest host.” .Paak shared the news on Instagram.
Mars, whose last album was 24K Magic in 2016, featured on Ed Sheeran‘s No. 6 Collaborations Project track, “Blow,” in 2019. He collaborated with Charlie Wilson last year for “Forever Valentine,” a song he co-wrote and co-produced.
Anderson .Paak’s last album was Ventura in 2019. Last year, he released a few singles, including “Jewelz,” “Lockdown” and its remix featuring a verse with Noname, and Trolls World Tour track “Don’t Slack” with Justin Timberlake.
