Smooth, funky, and reminiscent of 80s yacht rock, Mayer Hawthorne has returned with new single ‘Love Like That’. Hawthorne last released a solo album way back in 2013, but has kept himself busy: he’s worked with producer Jake One on their project Tuxedo, and formed Jaded Incorporated with 14KT. On ‘Love Like That’, Hawthorne croons about yearning for love over driving drums and bass, bouncing keys and kooky synth lines. The song sounds like a mash-up of sweet 60s soul, disco, and Hall and Oates, and boy is it funky.
Mayer Hawthorne’s new album, ‘Man About Town’, is out April 8.
