Mars previously posted a couple of photos from Blackbird on his Facebook page and wrote: “What a great great time I’m having creating new, fresh, greasy LOUD-ASS, slamming music.”

During a March 2014 appearance on Eddie Trunk’s show “Trunk Nation” on SiriusXM’s Hair Nation, Mars stated about his solo plans: “I can honestly say that I am going to release at least an EP. As far as a whole album right now, I won’t release a whole album ’till I think every single one of my songs is an ‘A’ song. And I’ve got a shitload of songs, and they’re all ‘B’ songs, ‘C’ songs… I’ll give them to, like, baby bands coming up, TV commercials, movies, soundtracks, whatever the heck, but I will not put them on my record until I believe in my heart that they’re ‘A’ songs, that when you hear them, you have to have all of them. You know what I mean? No fillers. If I hear a filler in there or anything I think is a filler? No. But then, who am I to judge? Then you release singles.”

In a 2012 interview, Mars talked about Motley Crue’s 1994 self-titled album: “I thought that was probably… To me, and I can only speak for me, I think that was probably the best album we’ve done. Musical-wise, the songs, I felt, were strong. And just musically, to me, it was, I guess, my Beatles ‘White Album’; that’s kind of how I feel about that one. I’m not saying that any of my other albums are crummy or anything like that — I love every album that we did — but that one just has a special thing for me.”

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee echoed Mick’s sentiments, telling Australia’s Beat: “It’s huge. Honestly, dude, it’s one of my favourite Crue records. Sonically, the songs and the playing on that record is gnarly. We worked our asses off on that record. We had so much to prove: Vince was gone, we had a new singer who also plays guitar and writes and he brought a whole new element to this. But once fans are used to a certain thing, they just didn’t want to know about any other version of Motley Crue. That’s understandable, but when you break it down, that record still sounds rad today.”
