Bruno Mars Streams New Album 'Unorthodox Jukebox' Online

The biggest selling artist of 2011 (over 5 million albums and 45 million singles sold worldwide) is back with his new album. BRUNO MARS recently unveiled the video for the album's first single "Locked Out Of Heaven". 

Unorthodox Jukebox is the follow-up to his platinum certified breakthrough debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans and is released in the UK on 10 December.

As the title suggests, Unorthodox Jukebox once again sees Mars melding a multitude of music approaches to create his own distinctive sound. The album was executive produced by The Smeezingtons, the hit-making production team comprised of Mars, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine. An additional array of top producers also joined in the creation of Unorthodox Jukebox, including such award-winning studio superstars as Jeff Bhasker (Kayne West, Jay Z), Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Black Lips) and Diplo (M.I.A, Usher). 

Bruno Mars is a 13-time Grammy Award nominee who has sold over 45 million singles worldwide and has over 1 billion views on YouTube. Bruno's debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans was released in October 2010 and has been certified 39x Platinum worldwide. The album, which was named "the year's finest pop debut: 10 near-perfect songs," by Rolling Stone, included the 12x platinum blockbuster single "Just the Way You Are," which hit number 1 in multiple countries across the globe and won the critically-acclaimed artist a Grammy Award for "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance." Doo-Wops & Hooligans claimed two additional hit singles, the 10x platinum "Grenade" and 6x platinum "The Lazy Song."

Mars has received an abundance of accolades to date, including ASCAP Song of the Year, a Billboard Music Award for Top Radio Song for "Just the Way You Are," a BRIT Award for International Male Solo Artist, an American Music Award for Favorite Male Artist in Pop/Rock, two MTV European Music Awards including Best New Artist, and the People's Choice Award for Favorite Male Artist. In 2011, Mars was named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world.

In October 2012, Mars premiered the first single, "Locked Out of Heaven," from his highly-anticipated sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox. On October 20th, Mars made his comeback to national television when he joined the elite club of hosts and performers for Saturday Night Live alongside the likes of Mick Jagger, Justin Timberlake and Elton John. Mars not only showcased his comedic talent to the millions watching, but also debuted the first live performance of "Locked Out of Heaven" and premiered a brand new song, "Young Girls," from the historic stage in New York City.

Unorthodox Jukebox is released on December 10th. Mars and his songwriting/production team The Smeezingtons (Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine) partnered with heavyweight producers including Jeff Bhasker, Mark Ronson and Diplo to create the 10-track album.

Following SNL, Mars has a rigorous schedule lined up to promote Unorthodox Jukebox both stateside and abroad, including recently performing on the X Factor in the UK.
