Plenty of new songs have been released from popular artists. Among them, "24K Magic" by Bruno Mars is getting the greatest attention!

 

"24K Magic" (pronounced "twenty-four karat magic") is the first song released off his forthcoming third studio album, his first since 2012's Unorthodox Jukebox, which yielded the hits "Locked Out of Heaven," "When I Was Your Man" and "Treasure." The song dropped Oct. 7.

"You can call it my first single, but I call it the invitation to the party," Mars wrote in an Instagram caption.

 

For as ubiquitous as John Legend's been these last couple of years, Instagram husband duties and all, he hasn't actually put out that much new music. Lucky for us, on the very same day as the new song of Bruno is released, the Legend is back with "Love Me Now," the first single from his next album, Darkness & Light.

“Whenever I name an album I’m usually always done with it and I’m thinking about the lyrics of the songs that mean a lot to me,” says Legend. “Darkness and light, as kind of a theme, kept coming up in certain songs. What darkness means to me… there’s uncertainty, there’s trouble, there’s things about this world that, you know, might feel like they’re not right. We see a lot of turmoil in the world. We see people struggling, people fighting. The light is love, it’s music, it’s things that bring us together. And so I wanted to think about what it means to find that light in the darkness.”

Also on October 7th, OneRepublic released their fourth studio album entitled “Oh My My”. Three long years have past since “Native” and it was already about time Ryan Tedder and Co. returned with new music for us. Ryan has commented the band took 18 months in total to complete this album.

And last but not least, Green Day return with their latest album, Revolution Radio. The new collection serves as Green Day’s 12th full-length to date and the follow-up to 2012’s ill-fated trilogy, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!. It’s also the first self-produced effort since Warning in 2000.
