“Leave The Door Open” by the American band Silk Sonic was released on March 5. Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak dropped this single to prepare the world for their debut album, which has yet to be released.

After his last single was released in July 2019 and his last album, “24k Magic,” in November of 2016, Bruno Mars went on hiatus for two years. He wasn’t heard from until he announced on Feb. 26 that he was dropping a new album with his new band Silk Sonic.

Brandon Paak Anderson, more commonly known as Anderson .Paak, is an American rapper and songwriter from Oxnard, California. His most recent single, “Lockdown,” won the 2021 Grammy Award for Best Melodic Rap Performance, beating Travis Scott’s “Highest In The Room” and DaBaby and Roddy Rich’s “Rockstar.”

If you are a fan of R&B and soul music, or a fan of Anderson .Paak or Bruno Mars, definitely listen to “Leave The Door Open” and stick around to hear the whole album when released.

Peter Framptom released the second cover from his new record of covers entitled “Framptom Forgets The Words.” The first cover, released in late January, was a soulful rendition of “Reckoner” by Radiohead. This time around, Framptom covered “Avalon” by Roxy Music. If you are interested in Frampton’s incredible guitar work and want to see where he gets his inspiration from musically, “Framptom Forgets The Words” is an essential album to look out for.
