It may not feature him front-and-center, but the cover art for Bruno Mars’s sophomore album is still b-a-n-a-n-a-s…
The 26-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer has unveiled the new cover art for Unorthodox Jukebox, as well as the 10-track listing for the album.
The album cover features a gorilla up against a retro jukebox, seemingly in awe of the machine in front of hime.
The album art has been getting a mixed reaction from fans that are trying to figure out what the artwork’s all about. The track list does include a song entitled “Gorilla,” which has led to speculation that it could relate to the cover.
Meanwhile, the album’s first track “Locked Out of Heaven,” which Mars performed while pulling double duty as host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live, currently stands at No 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 in its third week on the charts.
Mars’ collaborators on his second studio album include producers Mark Ronson, Diplo, Supa Dups, and The Smeezingtons, Mars’ three-man songwriting and production team.
“This is me going into the studio and recording and writing whatever I want. This album represents my freedom,” said Mars during an interview with Billboard.
Here’s a look at the track listing for Mars’ new album:
1. “Young Girls”
2. “Locked Out of Heaven”
6. “When I Was Your Man”
8. “Show Me”
9. “Money Make Her Smile”
10. “If I Knew”
Mars’ Unorthodox Jukebox album will be released on December 11.
