Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak have shared their first collaborative song as Silk Sonic after teasing the project last week. “Leave the Door Open” is the first single from a forthcoming full-length called An Evening With Silk Sonic, and it arrives with a music video and an intro track from the album’s “special guest host” Bootsy Collins. Check it out below.
“Leave the Door Open” was produced by Bruno Mars and D’Mile; it was written by Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak, D’Mile, and Brody Brown. A press release notes that the duo was named Silk Sonic by Bootsy Collins. An Evening With Silk Sonic is due later this year, but currently has no release date.
Bruno Mars’ most recent solo album was 2016’s 24K Magic, with Anderson .Paak’s Ventura arriving in 2019. Between those two records, the pair toured together in 2017, reportedly working on new material with Nile Rodgers and Disclosure at Abbey Road.
