Usually, when soul brother Mayer Hawthorne releases one of his digital freebies through Twitter on what he calls #MayerMonday, it’s a remix, a DJ set or a photo of him eating a really phenomenal burger .
But every once in a while, #MayerMonday sees an honest-to-goodness new Mayer Hawthorne song come to light, effectively funkifying everyone’s Monday. Today, as luck would have it, is one of those Mondays. Hawthorne just released a new track called “Designer Drug,” a snazzy little electro-funk number with a bit more synth than we’re used to hearing from him, but not a drop less swagger. Check it out below.
