Mayer Hawthorne – Maybe So, Maybe No [download]

Mayer Hawthorne

It’s Monday and the blues settles in as the realisation of a long week ahead sinks in. Fear not, for the good people over at Stones Throw have something to help keep the blues at bay and start the week on an uplifting tip.

Their plan is quite simple: putting the title track from the latest single from Mayer Hawthorne, ‘Maybe So, Maybe No,’ out there in the wilderness that is the internet, letting it spread its way and infect earphones/speakers with its sunny vibe and uplifting mood. You can download the track below. As they put it:

“If you’ve somehow missed him till now, Mayer Hawthorne is a young soul singer & musician from Michigan who brings his hip-hop background to the Motown sound. His debut single has garnered him huge props from the likes of Q-Tip, Mark Ronson, Gilles Peterson, Benji B and far too many others to mention. B-side to this new single is the lovely ‘I Wish It Would Rain’”.

Hawthorne’s first single, the rather excellent ‘Just Ain’t Gonna Work Out’, was a firm Rhythm Inc favourite in 08 and this new one is already creeping up in the favourite stakes too.

‘Maybe So, Maybe No’ is out now on digital via Stones Throw’s own shop. Grab the title cut below, and if you like it then go that little extra length and cop the whole single. It is worth it. I believe the vinyl version should be out in the coming month(s).
