Bruno Mars has revealed that Silk Sonic, the supergroup featuring Mars and Anderson .Paak, will not be submitting their debut album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, for consideration at the 2023 Grammy Awards.
“We truly put our all on this record, but Silk Sonic would like to gracefully, humbly, and, most importantly, sexually, bow out of submitting our album this year,” Mars told Rolling Stone. “We hope we can celebrate with everyone on a great year of music and partake in the party. Thank you for letting Silk Sonic thrive.”
Silk Sonic’s debut album An Evening With Silk Sonic, which dropped in November 2021, had received critical acclaim.
“Andy and I, and everyone that worked on this project, won the moment the world responded to ‘Leave The Door Open.’ Everything else was just icing on the cake,” he says. “We thank the Grammys for allowing us to perform on their platform – not once but twice – and awarding us at last year’s ceremony. We’d be crazy to ask for anything more.”
The album’s lead single, “Leave the Door Open,” which dropped in April of 2021, won all four Grammys for which it was nominated at the 2022 awards, including record and single of the year.
However, as the album dropped in November last year, it is only eligible for 2023 awards.
