Published Feb 26, 2021Further demonstrating his love of collaboration, Bruno Mars has started a full-fledged project with Anderson .Paak. The duo have announced that their new project is called Silk Sonic, and they have a new album ready to go.
Mars first announced the project on Twitter, saying "We locked in and made an album." He added that Silk Sonic's first single will arrive on March 5.
