THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “The seeds of Silk Sonic were planted in 2017, when Anderson .Paak opened for Bruno Mars on the European leg of his 24K Magic World Tour. One late-night jam session on the road unlocked immediate chemistry.

Just before the world slipped into quarantine, Bruno called Anderson: “Remember that idea we had back in 2017? Let’s do it.” One studio session grew into to a months-long collaboration, culminating in the “setlist of doom.” The legendary Bootsy Collins christened Silk Sonic and came in as the “special guest host” for An Evening With Silk Sonic, their debut album.

Silk Sonic were finally set free on March 5, 2021. Within less than a month, their debut single Leave The Door Open cracked over 230 million streams, 90 million official video views and reeled in rave reviews. After petitioning the Grammy Awards to #LetSilkSonicThrive, they made their debut performance with Leave The Door Open and served up a powerful tribute to Little Richard.”
