Bruno Mars is ready to shine with new music.
On Friday (Oct. 7), the pop heartthrob is set to unleash “24K Magic” (pronounced twenty-four karat magic), the first single from his upcoming album.
“Excited to announce ’24k Magic,’ out this Friday,” Bruno wrote on Instagram. “You can call it my first single, but I call it the invitation to the party.”
In this case, the “party” is Bruno’s way of announcing his third studio album following 2010’s Doo-Wops & Hooligans and 2012’s Unorthodox Jukebox.
Fans have been asking Bruno for new music for quite some time. Yesterday, the singer teased supporters on Twitter. “You think I’ve been playin this whole time?” he tweeted. “You don’t think I’m masterminding the return?”
News about the album has been bubbling all year. In April, Bruno hit the studio with Missy Elliott and in June, he collaborated with Skrillex. While an official release date has not been announced, insiders claim that the album is due in November.
“I’m on a mission. I’m Obsessed to make an album I’m genuinely proud of,” Bruno told his fans earlier this year. “Stick with me Hooligans. I’ll get there.”
