- Artist: Mayer Hawthorne
- Track: The Stars Are Ours
- Producer: Andrew Cohen & Pharrell Williams
- Album: Where Does This Door Go
Having captured listeners' attention with lead single Her Favorite Song and the Father's Day-themed Reach Out Richard (which I've adopted as my official theme song), Mayer Hawthone continues to build anticipation for his senior set with The Stars Are Ours. A recent interview revealed that Hawthorne and frequent collaborator Pharrell Willams (co-producer of the record in conjunction with Andrew Cohen) share a passion for Steely Dan, and nowhere is that influence more clear than on this cut, a bluesy, '70s-inspired rocker boasting intricate guitar work and a knotty vocal melody. Like what you're hearing? More retro, yet forward-looking jams await on Where Does This Door Go, dropping July 16, via Universal Republic.
