Singer and Grammy Award nominee Bruno Mars is releasing a new album.

Unorthodox Jukebox is due in stores December 7, and a sneak peek at the album can be found right here on Times LIVE.

Mars , from Hawaii, and his songwriting/production team The Smeezingtons (Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine) partnered with heavyweight producers including Jeff Bhasker, Mark Ronson and Diplo to create the 10-track album.

Mars is a 13-time Grammy nominee who has sold over 45 million singles worldwide with over one billion views on YouTube.

His debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans was released in October 2010 and has been certified 39x Platinum worldwide. The album, which was named "the year's finest pop debut: 10 near-perfect songs," by Rolling Stone, included the 12-time Platinum single Just the Way You Are, which hit No. 1 in multiple countries across the globe and won the critically-acclaimed artist a Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

In October 2012, Mars premiered the first single off from Unorthodox Jukebox, called Locked Out of Heaven.

On October 20, Mars made his comeback to national television when he joined the elite club of hosts and performers for  Saturday Night Live alongside the likes of Mick Jagger, Justin Timberlake and Elton John.

Mars not only showcased his comedic talent to the millions watching, but also debuted the first live performance of Locked Out of Heaven and premiered a new song, Young Girls, from the historic stage in New York City.

Following SNL, Mars has a rigorous fall schedule lined up to promote  Unorthodox Jukebox both stateside and abroad, including a performance on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and multiple not-yet-announced TV performances.
