BEST NEW SONGS: MAYER HAWTHORNE - LOVE LIKE THAT
Three guesses as to what Mayer Hawthorne’s new single, “Love Like That,” is about.
OK, so the fact that the song is obvious is besides the point with Hawthorne. You’re here for the cashmere-smooth vocals and general fun he always brings to the proceedings. “Love Like That” is the second single off his forthcoming record, Man About Town. And like “Cosmic Love,” which dropped in January, this cut is an exploration in 70’s soul. While “Cosmic Love” went for the sexy-planetarium-trip vibe, “Love Like That” feels like it’d work best as Couple’s Skate song at the local roller rink. Mayer is in his element here, as he expands his retro-soul arsenal.
Get ready for a boat load of feels as you listen to Mr. Hawthorne pontificate on the type of love he’s seeking.
