The 'Grenade' singer says the song fits the theme of his upcoming album 'Unorthodox Jukebox', which he describes as being 'sensual, sensual and sensual.'
Bruno Mars finally debuts his latest song "Locked Out of Heaven", which serves as the lead single off his upcoming sophomore album "Unorthodox Jukebox". Revealed during a Google+ Hangout session on Monday, October 1, the feel-good track offers a combination of old-schooled Motown vibes and modern dance beats.
Just like most of Mars' previous works, this new song boasts lyrics that tell about falling in love and being in a romantic relationship. "Cause your sex takes me to paradise/ Yeah your sex takes me to paradise/ And it shows, yeah, yeah, yeah/ Cause you make feel like, I've been locked out of heaven/ For too long, for too long," so he sings in the chorus.
During the Hangout session, Mars revealed his most favorite lyric in the newly-released single was "But swimming in your water is something spiritual." He also explained that the lyrics in the song fit well with the theme of his upcoming album, which he described as "sensual, sensual and sensual."
Mars' "Unorthodox Jukebox" will be released Stateside on December 11. The Hawaiian singer would next appear as the host of "Saturday Night Live" on October 20. He's also set to perform his new song "Heaven" live for the first time ever. "It's incredibly flattering," he gushed about being tapped to perform on the variety show. "You have to have fun. For the first time ever live, I'm going to sing that song, so no pressure."
