Bruno Mars hasn’t released a record since 2012’s undeniable pop epic Unorthodox Jukebox. He’ll amend that hiccup on Nov. 18, when 24K Magic hits the web.
In the meantime, the hit man on Friday premiered a new song and video from the upcoming record.
“Put your pinky finger to the moon” is going to be a thing.
The track, “24K Magic,” builds on an Auto-Tune suite and jolts with retro synthesizers and swagger-baiting sing-raps that recall Grandmaster Flash-era boasts about fresh fashion. You can’t sit on the sidelines that long and not return with a banger—Mr. Mars has done just that.
