SILK SONIC PUSHES BACK THE RELEASE OF DEBUT ALBUM
Written by Randy C on August 19, 2021
Bruno Mars and Anderson . Paak has stolen the hearts of their fans with their lead single, “Leave the Door Open.” The two have joined forces and created the group Silk Sonic earlier this year.
While the two have just released the song and visual to their newest single, “Skate,” the group shared with The Rolling Stone that they have decided to push back the release of the highly anticipated debut album.
“That song was like our mission statement,” .Paak said referring to “Leave the Door Open.” “It’s the intro to the book, to set the tone and let you know the sound. There’s different kinds of waves, but the whole album is wrapped around that.”
Apparently, the group plans to release the album in January of 2022. “I don’t want to be binge-watched,” said Bruno Mars. The singer stated that he wants to give their singles time to breathe before releasing the next single. 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,” he shared.
“I think we put the pressure on ourselves by putting out ‘Leave the Door Open’ — but a deadline is important, because at some point, you gotta say, ‘This is it.’ Otherwise you’re gonna work it till you hate it. But there’s a beauty in that — you do have to get sick of it, because that means you put the love and the time and the passion in it, and it’s taxing.”
