No one is really sure where this came from, which makes it even that much more funky. No promo. No producers. No word on who the hell released this. Just a soundclound, Twitter, and Facebook account and website – oh, yeah, and 3 of the funkiest tunes I’ve heard in years.
The singer is clearly Mayer Hawthorne. There is no mistaking his style and voice on these tracks. The collaborator is rumored to be industry veteran Jake One, but there are is also talk around the interwebs that these are simply tracks that didn’t make the cut when Mayer Hawthorne brought his soulful style from Stones Throw to Universal.
Regardless of how they came to be I can’t wait to hear more.
