Unorthodox Bruno Mars LP imminent

Releases

Bruno Mars

Barely a week and a half since he confirmed its completion, miniature pop princeling Bruno Mars has given his brand new studio LP a name and release date.

Sounding slightly like the sequel to Rizzle Kicks’ debut ‘Stereo Typical’, without being so at all, Mars’ sophomore record ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ is destined to prove the perfect Christmas gift when it’s made available on 10 Dec.

Bruno’s been talking about ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ to Billboard, supplying various quotes about how its eclectic sound represents his desire for artistic liberty.

This is one: “This is me going into the studio and recording and writing whatever I want. This album represents my freedom”.

Also: “I’ve had big record label presidents look me in the face and say, ‘Your music sucks, you don’t know who you are, your music is all over the place, and we don’t know how to market this stuff. Pick a lane and come back to us’. That was disgusting to me, because I’m not trying to be a circus act”.

‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ will feature paradoxically orthodox production by Mark Ronson, Diplo and Beyonce overseer Jeff Bhasker.
