Come Friday, Bruno Mars is back.

The Atlantic Records artist announced that a new single, entitled "24K Magic" (pronounced "twenty-four karat magic") will drop Oct. 7.

"Excited to announce 24k Magic, out this Friday!!" he said on Instagram. "You can call it my first single, but I call it the invitation to the party."

"24K Magic" will be the first song released off his forthcoming third studio album — his first in four years, since 2012's Unorthodox Jukebox, which yielded the hits "Locked Out of Heaven", "When I Was Your Man" and "Treasure."
