New Mayer Hawthorne Tracks!!

  • by

All you Mayer Hawthorne fanatics are in for a treat.  We have two recently recorded tracks for download from the talented Motown revivalist himself.

After the creating a banging remix of Mayer’s “Green-Eyed Love”, Mayer has hired electro duo Classixx as producers for his latest track entitled “No Strings”.  It seems to be that Soul is the next genre in line to be “electro”-fied.

The track we have is “I Need You” produced by Nottz.  I let Mr.Hawthorne himself explained this one to you

“I met Nottz at Nightlife’s Dilla Tribute in L.A. and we just kept in contact. I had always been a fan of Nottz since the 90s. He sent me a bunch of beats and at first I had no idea what to do with any of them, but eventually it hit me. I sang a hook for him on his album as well.

The song is a cover of a cat named Otis Leavill which is one of my all time fav soul sides, but relatively unknown 45. I don’t think Nottz even knew it. I actually even made up some of the words because no one could make out what he said in the original. ha!

When Nottz sent me that batch – that particular beat stood out. It had the same chord progression as the Otis Leville, so I just went with it.”
