Album download and 12-page booklet included, download subject to expiration
A practitioner of his own variety of playful but sincere blue-eyed soul, Mayer Hawthorne is the stage name of eclectic DJ/producer Andrew Cohen. This brand-new studio release includes a 12-page booklet plus an album download.
Ann Arbor's resident shape-shifting soul man, Grammy-nominated Mayer Hawthorne, releases his fourth studio LP, Man About Town, via BMG's Rights imprint on April 8th, 2016. The album follows in the wake of the 37-year-old Michigan musician's '80s funk project with collaborator, Jake One, called Tuxedo, which was released last year.
Man About Town contains 10 new tracks with Hawthorne playing all the instruments. It features the catchy current single, "Cosmic Love" — released as an album taster earlier this year — which is a soulful retro-groove with shimmering keys and churning rhythm guitar whose falsetto vocals recalls Curtis Mayfield. Other standouts include "Love Like That" — scheduled as the next single and released on the same day as the album — plus the infectious beat ballad "Breakfast In Bed," the sleek and sensuous horn-laced groove "Lingerie & Candlewax" which boasts an insistent earworm of a chorus and the laidback reggae-infused "Fancy Clothes."
