Omg! Have you heard Bruno Mars‘ new single? It’s called “Locked Out of Heaven” and I want to play it on repeat for the next couple weeks. The harder-edged tune will be a part of his sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox which comes out December 11. Mars tells Billboard that this album represents his freedom in the studio. “This is me going into the studio and recording and writing whatever I want.” If “Locked Out of Heaven” is any indication of what’s to come… I’m in.
When asked why he would be locked out of heaven, Mars replied, “well… sex is heaven!” The sound is completely different, rather than Mars crooning about love or beauty, this song has a tribal beat and bright synths as he wails out lyrics completely centered around sex that feels heavenly.
