Silk Sonic have dropped their debut album, An Evening With Silk Sonic, and fans want to get their hands on a vinyl copy of the smooth R&B tracks. Here’s everything we know about the album and merch, including track list and prices.
Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak are the ultimate duo if you want to hear old-school sounds with a modern twist.
Their impressive harmonies matched with their laidback funk style makes their record perfect for the winter months.
That’s why fans are dying to know whether the superduo have dropped a vinyl version, particularly since it has been so long since a Bruno Mars album.

An Evening With Silk Sonic tracklist
The nine-song album takes inspiration from the Seventies disco era. You can tell both artists love their old-school music: the music videos for their singles Leave The Door Open, Skate and Smokin Out The Window definitely don’t belong in this decade.
It’s also a new sound for Mars; this is his first record playing the congas, a Cuban drum.

Is there a Silk Sonic vinyl soon?
There has been no confirmation of a vinyl yet but Anderson has released vinyl LPs for his albums Oxnard, Ventura and single Bubblin, so it makes sense there will be a Silk Sonic vinyl.
Likewise, Bruno has vinyl versions of three of his records. Plus, vinyl would be on-brand with Silk Sonics’ throwback style – they’ve already got a bronze cassette for merch.
Fans have taken to Reddit to discuss possible vinyl release dates, with one user claiming a Silk Sonic release would definitely come – but not until March 2022 because there’s a global vinyl shortage, according to his local record store.
In February 2020, the Apollo Transco vinyl manufacturing plant was destroyed in a raging fire, while pandemic restrictions limited air travel.

As well as the bronze cassette (£6.99/$15), there’s a limited edition box set of the CD with a gold or cream T-shirt decorated with the album cover print for $45 (US store).
UK fans get a bundle of the CD, T-shirt and cassette for £29.99. Unfortunately, most merch is sold out in the UK store but everything is still available in the US version.
