Silk Sonic Celebrates Valentine’s Day With ‘Love’s Train’: Look + Listen

In celebration of Valentine’s Day Silk Sonic‘s Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak release their cover version of Con Funk Shun’s classic single “Love’s Train.”

Inspired by a love triangle Con Funk Shun’s Michael Cooper and Felton Pilate found themselves in, the two band members came together to write their 1982 classic.

While making the album An Evening With Silk Sonic Mars and .Paak and producer D’Mile bonded over their love of classic soul and poured this mutual admiration into the music.

In an interview with Rolling Stone Anderson said “It’s all from the heart because we’re writing from our experiences, from our relationships.” “It’s rare that two men can come together and talk about love.”

Bruno added: “A good song can bring people together — you don’t have to actually sing the words ‘Everybody come together.’ Sometimes the hard thing is to actually do it. You don’t have to say, ‘Everybody raise your hands’ — sometimes you just hit the right chord and it happens. So that was our mindset with the whole album. If it makes us feel good and resonates with us, that’s gonna be infectious and make other people feel good — and that’s our jobs as entertainers.”
