Bruno Mars released his video for “Locked Out of Heaven,” the first single off his upcoming Unorthodox Jukebox album, on Monday.
Mars told MTV News before the video’s premiere, it was finished a couple of days ago, [and], you know, a lot of times people want to do a big premiere or something like that,” he said. “But I feel like, with the Internet, I have the luxury to go straight to the fans and say, ‘Here it is.’ ”
“The concept is just old-fashioned fun. No story line, it’s not me singing to a girl, you get a good sense of what you’re going to get live,” he said. “It’s very VHS-y. I love that man, it takes me back to my childhood, when the tracking is off and the color is off, there’s a beauty in that. You’d have to stand by the TV with, like, aluminum foil all over you.”
Mars explained, the clip is meant to give fans a taste of what they can expect on Jukebox (due December 11) and the tour that will follow the album’s release.
