Watch Bruno Mars Making 'Unorthodox Jukebox'

Rolling Stone

With a just few days left until Bruno Mars releases Unorthodox Jukebox on December 11th (though the LP is streaming now on his website), the singer is offering a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album, the follow-up to his 2010 breakout debut Doo-Wops & Hooligans.

This exclusive clip captures Mars as he works alongside pop production heavyweights including Mark Ronson, Jeff Bhasker, Emile Haynie and his Smeezingtons collaborators Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine. The intimate, somewhat grainy footage is filled with clips of the musicians goofing around, playing poker, showing off their dance moves (Mars lets loose with an adorably goofy shuffle about 32-seconds in) and, of course doing what they do best: making pop hits.

"We took some master chefs into the kitchen with no master plan," Mars recently told Rolling Stone. "It was either going to be a disaster, or we were going to come out with something incredible."
