Bring on the funk!
Last week, in the midst of a rather quiet New Music
Friday Thursday night, Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars surprised fans by announcing they are releasing an album together – with help from Bootsy Collins (!!) – under the name Silk Sonic. Now, they’ve shared the project’s first single, “Leave The Door Open.”
“These days, you get so many collaborations where a lot of it’s done through email, you never meet the person, it’s texts,” .Paak said to Zane Low. “It’s like a play. It’s all this sh-t and people don’t understand, when you get in and you can jam with someone and other artists that could hold it down and you’re bouncing, that’s different. That’s the difference and you’re really creating a groove from scratch. You guys are trying to figure out what’s going to work.”
The soulful duo have dropped a matching set of visual for it, and… man, just press play on this groove.
