After teasing the project last week, acclaimed festival headliner and multi-hyphenate Anderson .Paak has teamed up with hitmaker Bruno Mars as the new group Silk Sonic.

To give fans a taste of their impending album – which will include “special guest host” Bootsy Collins – the duo shared the sugary-sweet (verging on tongue-in-cheek) love ballad “Leave The Door Open.”

In the pre-pandemic world, .Paak opened for Mars on his 24K Magic world tour and, as revealed in the “Leave The Door Open” video, the duo are finding inspiration from ’70s glam legends like Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Sly Stone and, of course, Parliament Funkadelic.

“I’M SO PROUD OF THIS ONE IM CRYING!!!” .Paak exclaimed via social media.
