mayerstudio213 Mayer Hawthorne announces new album, Where Does This Door Go

Neo-soul crooner Mayer Hawthorne will release his third full-length album, Where Does This Door Go, on July 16th via Republic Records. Featuring production from Pharrell Williams, Jack Splash, and Oak (of Oak & Pop), Hawthorne describes the material as “Steely Dan meets the Beastie Boys”, adding, “The only rule I had when I went in to make this album was that it had to be fun.”

Moving away from the break-up-centric tunes of 2011′s How Do You Do, the record is further described as coming-of-age tale, “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.”

While a tracklist has yet to be confirmed, the electro-funk ballad “Designer Drug” was unveiled earlier this month, and a lead single entitled “Her Favorite Song” will be released sometime in May. Below, watch the album’s announcement trailer, which pairs a sweeping orchestral number with door-opening footage from classics like The Matrix, Alice In Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, and more.

In support of the record, Hawthorne will be on tour throughout the summer, supporting the slightly-less-soulful OneRepublic. Consult the full schedule below.
