Bruno Mars Silk Sonic album and 5 other albums still coming in 2021 including, Coldplay, Young Thug, Diana Ross, and more …
The music aspect of the entertainment sector has been quite promising in 2021, with several albums being released and tours being scheduled. Joining the troupe, Bruno Mars has finally announced the release date of the Silk Sonic album, a collaboration with Anderson Paak.
The album under the Silk Sonic banner is tagged An Evening With Silk Sonic. It will be available on all digital streaming platforms starting 12 November 2021, which is earlier than expected. In August, Bruno Mars had an interview with Rolling Stone where he had suggested a January 2022 release date for the project.
The album will feature Parliament-Funkadelic alum Bootsy Collins as a “special guest host” and will also include the previously-released singles “Leave the Door Open” (which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and which the duo performed on the 2021 Grammys) and “Skate.”
Asides from these two, no other song titles from the soon-to-be-released album were revealed as part of the announcement. Instead, the singer said:
“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.”
Asides from the Bruno Mars album slated for release soon, there are other albums slated for release this year.
