The 'Locked Out Of Heaven' singer says he still "loves" all of his original songs from back in 2010.
Bruno Mars has reportedly vowed to sing his older music throughout his career, despite something of a change of direction for new album 'Unorthodox Jukebox'.
The US star arrived with debut album 'Doo-Wops & Hooligans' back in 2010, spawning a string of hit singles including 'Just The Way You Are', 'Grenade' and 'The Lazy Song', and say the songs are still important to him now.
"I love those songs," Bruno told a US paper this week, according to the Belfast Telegraph. "I'll stand by them and sing them till the day I die."
Bruno went on to explain that musical artists need to keep experimenting to stay exciting and relevant in the industry, referring to the variety of style he explores on second release 'Unorthodox Jukebox'.
"An artist has to stay excited to keep on doing it," Bruno added. "And the way to stay excited is to keep pushing and to keep experimenting. I feel like I pushed on this record."
