New Song: Bruno Mars, ‘Moonshine’

Check out Bruno Mars’ new jam “Moonshine’

Bruno Mars certainly gets around. In between striking curious poses at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York, the “Young Girls” singer found the time to prep for the release of his Unorthodox Jukebox album AND release a brand-new song called “Moonshine,” which we hypothesize is probably about the extremely potent liquor and/or a metaphor for a hot girl. Just a hunch.

Listen to Bruno Mars’s “Moonshine.” 

Produced by Jeff Bhasker and Nicky Romero, Unorthodox Jukebox‘s third official release has Bruno rocking an ’80s-tinged vibe with some heavy-breathing Michael Jackson-like vocals. As the beat drops, you’re kind of not sure if the “Locked Out Of Heaven” singer is about to bust out a B-side from the “Dirty Dancing” soundtrack (anyone else feel that? Anyone?) or a brand-new track of his own. Either way, we’re totally feeling it as he sings about the joys of (alcohol/hot girl-induced) escapism: “This world ain’t for you/ and I know for damn sure this world aint for me/ Lift off and say goodbye/ Just let your fire set me free/ Moonshine, take us to the stars tonight/ Take us to that special place.” Yo, take me there too, Moonshine! And Bruno, I’ll meet you there bb — I may not be 100 percent sober, but I’ll pull it together, promise.
