Silk Sonic has finally announced a release date for their highly awaited debut album, An Evening with Silk Sonic. It will arrive on November 12, via Aftermath Entertainment/Atlantic Records.
â€œWeâ€™re really in touch-up mode now,â€ Mars said. â€œWeâ€™ve got the bones of most of the album, so itâ€™s really about touching up parts that need a little moreâ€¦. grease.â€ Paak added, â€œWhich could mean redoing the song from scratch!â€
An Evening with Silk Sonic will feature an appearance from the legendary Bootsy Collins. The nine-track LP will include Silk Sonicâ€™s smash hit â€œLeave The Door Open,â€ which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as their latest single â€œSkate.â€ Both songs were produced by Grammy and Oscar winner Dâ€™Mile.
In an interview with Rated R&B, Dâ€™Mile shared the process of creating â€œLeave The Door Open.â€
He shared, â€œWe were playing around with different things and we kind of just gravitated to that sound. The â€˜70s again, which is something that [Bruno Mars] wanted to do. It wasnâ€™t necessarily me saying, â€˜We should go hereâ€™ or anything like that. I donâ€™t really like listening to anything else for inspiration. I think it kind of just happened, especially when [Anderson .Paak] came along and got involved. It just turned into what it became. I think just the vibe of us in the room, it was just screaming what the end result became to be.â€
The album is available for pre-order now.
