Description
On his third album, alternative R&B/retro soul singer Mayer Hawthorne goes to the well of hip-hop, reggae ("Allie Jones"), and vintage pop ("Her Favorite Song") for a set of 14 breezy, groove-laden tunes.

"Blessed with a clear, warm voice that soars on choruses to a pure high-register croon, and all-round instrumental skills to rival Stevie Wonder, Mayer Hawthorne is a blue-eyed R&B prodigy admired even by those whose crown he threatens, such as Justin Timberlake. Hawthorne's muse is steeped in '70s influences, notably falsetto and symphonic-soul giants like Curtis Mayfield and Barry White, while trailing threads of piercing lead guitar through songs like 'Wine Glass Woman' and 'Corsican Rose' bring to mind Ernie Isley's work on 'Summer Breeze'. Elsewhere, the buttoned-down guitar and jazzy electric piano of 'Back Seat Lover' and 'Reach Out Richard' recall Steely Dan."—The Independent

"The deliriously good moments—especially 'Crime,' with Kendrick Lamar, and 'The Only One'—prove Hawthorne should experiment more with his eyes fixed on the future."—Boston Globe
