Mayer Hawthorne
Where Does This Door Go

Release Date: July 16


The Ann Harbor-bred blue-eyed soul kid is probably tired of the cliché. You can smell the nervous sweat from the label from the mere mention of his forthcoming album title. Where Does This Door Go – Hawthorne’s third album – is expected to take things down a different route.  “The sound is a little more modern for sure, it’s got a lot more rock and roll, a little yacht rock, definitely,” Hawthorne told PopSugar at this year’s Grammys. “I think the main ingredient that has been my first rule is fun. And that’s definitely still there.” We’re looking at this with a very careful eye, almost with a hint of concern. Who doesn’t like his odes to Curtis Mayfield, Motown and Thom Bell?

The Pharrell Williams-produced “Reach Out Richard,” a Father’s Day nod to Daddy Hawthorne, is the latest track to get first-listen treatment in the Internet-verse.
