Mayer Hawthorne Asks 'Where Does This Door Go' on New LP
Published Apr 29, 2013Soul revivalist Mayer Hawthorne evidently doesn't believe in question marks. Having released the punctuation mark-free How Do You Do in 2011, he will follow it up this summer with Where Does This Door Go. It arrives on July 16 through Republic Records.
The album reportedly features production input from Pharrell Williams, Jack Splash, and Oak, and the album's subject matter concerns "a journey into the unknown. As a musician, you're only as good as your next record, and you never know what's through that next door."
You can get a taste of what's in store by watching an album trailer below; it features a clip of soaring music while showing various iconic door-opening scenes from films.
Hawthorne's recent track "Designer Drug" will presumably be on the album (hear that tune below), but the tracklist has not yet been unveiled. The lead single is called "Her Favourite Song."
Thanks to Consequence of Sound for the tip.
