Mayer Hawthorne gets a special remix, from none other than the legendary Large Professor, for his lead single “Her Favorite Song.” Hawthorne seems to be straying from any neo-soul labeling on his new album, Where Does This Door Go, after previously making tracks that sounded like you stepped into your grandparents’ living-room, with a new age swing.
Where Does This Door Go is slated for a July 16 release date, providing an alternative for your listening pleasures if you find yourself overdosing on this summer of hip hop. The album highlights production from Pharrell, Greg Wells, and a feature from Kendrick Lamar. Hawthorne’s super silky vocals over even smoother production makes for a killer album set to put Mayer in a class all his own with his third studio album.
As Pharrell puts it, “Wait ’til you guys hear it. It’s a book, his fucking album’s a book.” If it’s good enough for Skateboard P, then it’s undoubtedly good enough for us. Check the “Behind The Door” Teaser above, and Large Pro’s remix of “Her Favorite Song,” below.
