So, he's not going to be a judge on a singing competition like we wanted but here's some good news: Bruno Mars has announced that we should expect some new music from him verrrrrrrry soon! The multi-talented singer/songwriter/producer/musician is set to release his sophomore (second) album entitled Unorthodox Jukebox on December 11th and we'll all get to hear its first single "Locked Out of Heaven" on October 1st!

Mars recently spoke with Billboard about what to expect from the new album. "This album represents my freedom," he said. "This is me going into the studio and recording and writing whatever I want."
