It is about time we received some new (official) music from Mayer Hawthorne. As usual, Hawthorne likes to switch up his style with each and every release, recreating a new and lovable pop genre from the past. While we have seen him take on soul music and the tones of Hall & Oates, now he is pumping things up with a heavy dose of disco. After throwing a jab at Justin Timberlake, how mad do you think Hawthorne is that JT beat him to the drug personification track?
Listen to “Designer Drug” below. No word on a new album just yet, but perhaps this is setting things in motion for that next full-length.
