Bruno Mars dropped his electric new single and video "24K Magic" Thursday night, his first release since the Mark Ronson-assisted smash hit "Uptown Funk." Mars originally announced the song earlier this week with a post on Instagram. "You can call it my first single, but I call it the invitation to the party," he wrote at the time.
That wasn't the only good news he shared. Mars also announced on Twitter that he had completed work on his next album, also called 24K Magic.
MY ALBUM IS DONE!— Bruno Mars (@BrunoMars) October 3, 2016
He also showed off the album's cover:
The album will be Mars' third, and first since the 2012 release of Unorthodox Jukebox. Although he's stayed relevant through the success of "Uptown Funk"—which was technically a Mark Ronson single he was featured on—touring, and two high-profile appearances at the Super Bowl halftime show, fans have been craving new music for some time now.
24K Magic will be released Nov. 18 and feature nine new songs from Mars, including the title track which was written and produced by Shampoo Press & Curl with additional production from The Stereotypes. Mars was seen in the studio with Missy Elliott back in April, so it's possible that the two cooked something up together for the project, but we'll have to wait and see.
You can start getting excited for Bruno Mars' new album by purchasing his new single "24K Magic" on iTunes here, and by watching the video above. He'll also be making his fourth appearance on Saturday Night Live on Oct. 15.
