Mayer Hawthorne just wants to have fun. The bespectacled singer is prepping to drop his third major label release, Where Does This Door Go, on July 16th led by the single “Her Favorite Song” featuring Jessie Ware. Mayer spoke to VIBE about why this album is different, genre labels and his advice to Danny Brown about groupies.
“I threw every rule I ever had before out of the window and I decided that the ONLY rule was going to be that I had to have fun. The record had to be fun. I’m having the most fun that I’ve ever had in my life,” says Hawthorne, regarding “Where Does This Go.”

Hyper Trak describes the track as holding “an electro-funk sound similar to the giveaway track, “Designer Drug,” he released last month.” According to Fuse TV, the track sounds like a mix between a Robin Thicke and Sade, Hawthorne brings the funk and Jessie brings the soul.
