Bruno Mars Unveils ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ Cover, Tracklisting

Unorthodox Jukebox

Bruno Mars monkeys around on the cover of his sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox. The comical artwork shows a gorilla playing a jukebox (He also has a song on the album titled “Gorilla”).

Due December 11, the follow-up to his Grammy-winning debut Doo-Wops & Hooligans features 10 tracks including the single “Locked Out of Heaven” and “Young Girls,” which he premiered on “SNL.”

Mars executive produced the project with his songwriting/production team The Smeezingtons (Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine), and worked with producers including Jeff Bhasker, Mark Ronson, and Diplo.

“This is me locking myself in the studio and being free recording whatever it is I want to record,” the singer-songwriter told VH1. “Just being inspired by all different styles of music and isn’t that what music should be?”

    @ryan, Many albums in the past (i.e. 60s/70s/80s) usually had around 10-12 songs; today’s generation are just used to records containing tonnes of album-fillers. Bruno actually said in a Billboard interview that he made other songs, but he only wanted his favorite tracks on ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’. Anyway, I noticed that many of the artists under Atlantic Records have 10-12 songs on their albums, so it might be a record label thing.

    @ryan, Like Nina said, back in the day 10-12 songs was a normal range. Today, most mainstream artists have an album full of fillers with a handful of standout songs. I believe Stevie Wonder’s classic album, Innervisions, only had 9 tracks. Sounds like Bruno skipped the fillers aka fluff and stuck by what he truly loved and knew would stick with the listeners. This is exactly why Bruno stands out from a lot of other artists, he really understands music history. He doesn’t just talk it, you can genuinely see the influence. Also, Adele’s ’21′ only had 10 songs. Beyonce’s ’4′ had 12 tracks.

    artists these days get “paid” huge amount of money for fewer tracks look at flo rida 9-10 tracks gets paid millions for “mini albums”..i know the business side of things and trust me bruno mars is getting his check! not always about quantity, quality is important looks like now “filler” tracks here!
