A short while after announcing their heavy-hitting collaboration, Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars have released their first Silk Sonic single.

Featuring “special guest host” Bootsy Collins, “Leave the Door Open” is a groovy, Philly International Records-inspired retro release from their forthcoming album An Evening With Silk Sonic. An exquisite lounge track that finds Mars and .Paak singing their thoughts about how they’d like to romance their ladies, the lyrics are matched by a production reminiscent of the The Stylistics.

Alongside the super-smooth audio, comes the first Silk Sonic music video for the Atlantic Records release, directed by Mars and Florent Dechard, that features the band performing inside a recording studio with female fans dancing in the control room.

The latest Bruno Mars’ latest release coincides with the unveiling of his first lifestyle clothing collection in collaboration with Lacoste here.
