It’s about damn time. Bruno Mars is back and ready to rock and roll with the release of his new album. The Grammy winner released his brand new single, Locked Out of Heaven” yesterday via his Youtube account (www.youtube.com/brunomars). It’s taken off his forthcoming album, “Unorthodox Jukebox”, which is due for release on the 10th of December. The first big bit of promotion he’ll be doing is on SNL. He’ll be hosting and performing on the hit show on the 20th of October (to be aired in SA on the 27th). He’s also on the cover of Billboard Magazine, which you will see on the right.
