Get ready to see a lot of Bruno Mars. He’s just released his first album in four years, 24K Magic, which Rolling Stone calls “a lush nineties throwback.” He’s promoting the record and the 2017 world tour hard. He’s doing carpool karaoke with James Cordon and he’s showing 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan his Hawaiian hometown on Sunday November 20 (7:30pm, CBS). Tickets for the 24K Magic tour go on sale Monday, November 21.

In the recent Rolling Stone cover story, Mars said when it comes to streaming exclusives: “Sometime I feel like I’m in the music business 10 years too late. How many platforms do we have? Whose money are we giving to who? It’s this weird game. You don’t even buy songs anymore – it’s just a subscription; it’s Netflix. And while we’re in the process of figuring it all out, I’m here trying to make albums.” If 24K Magic sells as many copies as Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” featuring Bruno, Mars will be right on time.
