NEW MUSIC: BRUNO MARS, ANDERSON PAAK & SILK SONIC | SMOKIN' OUT THE WINDOW
Silk Sonic, the super duo comprised of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak has just dropped the release of their brand new single, “Smokin’ Out The Window.” The new track marks the third single off their debut album, "An Evening With Silk Sonic," following “Skate” from July and “Leave the Door Open” from March. The pair teased the visual on social media but made sure to leave out the actual sound, making fans comment on how the two are always teasing them with releases. "An Evening With Silk Sonic" was initially scheduled to release in 2022 but was moved earlier to November 12, 2021. In a previous interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Mars and .Paak revealed that the Silk Sonic project began from a studio session in 2017. “It snowballed. And it was like, well, want to come back tomorrow? And we kept coming up with music. It felt like why you fell in love with music in the first place. And jamming with your buddy… There’s no plan, just working out the parts and trying to excite each other,” Mars said. The objective of this album was to provide some feel-good music following the bleak headlines that dominated through the pandemic and beyond. "A good song can bring people together — you don't have to actually sing the words 'Everybody come together.' Sometimes the hard thing is to actually do it. You don't have to say, 'Everybody raises your hands' — sometimes you just hit the right chord, and it happens," Mars told Rolling Stone. "So that was our mindset with the whole album."
