It may not feel like it — thanks in large part to “Uptown Funk”; arguably 2015’s biggest hit — but Bruno Mars hasn’t released an album since Unorthodox Jukebox in 2012. That changes on November 18th when Mars returns with 24K Magic, whose title track has already found a home in the Top 5 of Billboard’s Hot 100.
Mars was in the Fresh 102.7 Studio with Carson & Cane to discuss what he has in store for his third studio album and more.
“24K [Magic] is the invitation,” Mars says of his third studio album, describing it as a party. “I’m gonna take you guys on a ride for this album.”
As evidenced by the album’s lead single and titled single, that won’t be a stretch. There will, of course, be tracks more in line with his early hits such as “Just The Way You Are” and “Grenade.”
“That’s always going to be a part of me,” Mars says of his more heartfelt tracks. “You know you’re going to get a little heartbreak in this album. You’re going it get it all.”

24K Magic will be available on November 18th.
