Bruno Mars New Album 2016 Delayed Because of Coldplay

Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars’ new album will come out this fall. The album, which was scheduled to release this month, got delayed because of his Super Bowl collaboration with Coldplay and Beyonce. The singer has some great tracks and fans can look forward to a “sound evolution” of sorts by September this year.

The album, which has some great tracks, might witness some small tweaks here and there given the delayed release. Inquistir explains that the “Uptown Funk” singer’s dad, Pete Hernandez, revealed some details about the changes. He said that Bruno Mars already had almost 10 songs finalised for the studio project. However, given the delay, there might be a change in the tracklist if the singer feels that they aren’t hit-worthy anymore. Music Times states that his father has attributed Mars’ Super Bowl gig as a reason for the delay. “It was due in March, but by doing the Super Bowl, it threw him back several months,” said Hernandez.

The third album will be a follow-up on his first two—“Doo-Wops & Hooligans” and “Unorthodox Jukebox.” These were released in 2010 and 2012, respectively, notes NME. Both albums were immensely successful and sold more than six million copies worldwide. They even grabbed top spots on music charts in the UK.

Charles Moniz, Mars’ sound engineer, is very optimistic about his upcoming album. According to Music Times, Moniz feels that it could be the next big thing for Bruno Mars after his previous successes. “I think it’s going to be the next movement of Bruno. That’s the thing: When the vibe’s right and everyone’s having fun, that’s when the best music comes out,” Moniz explained.

While the singer himself hasn’t revealed much about his upcoming album, his father said that the album would be released in six months’ time. “The album should now be released in September or October, to qualify for next year’s Grammy Awards,” Mr. Hernandez said.
