Ann Arbor's resident shape-shifting soul man, Grammy nominated Mayer Hawthorne, releases his fourth studio LP, 'Man About Town,' via BMG's Rights imprint in April 2016. The album follows in the wake of the 37-year-old Michigan musician's '80s funk project with collaborator, Jake One, called 'Tuxedo,' which was released last year.

'Man About Town' contains ten new tracks with Hawthorne playing all the instruments. It features the catchy current single, 'Cosmic Love' - released as an album taster earlier this year - which is a soulful retro-groove with shimmering keys and churning rhythm guitar whose falsetto vocals recalls Curtis Mayfield. Other standouts include 'Love Like That' - scheduled as the next single and released on the same day as the album - plus the infectious beat ballad 'Breakfast In Bed,' the sleek and sensuous horn-laced groove 'Lingerie & Candlewax' which boasts an insistent earworm of a chorus and the laidback reggae-infused 'Fancy Clothes.' – Fat Beats

“Like raw silk, Man About Town is smooth but it has texture, and that makes it feel all the more satisfying. Mayer Hawthorne is a bit too far along in his career to surprise us with his work, and Man About Town doesn't boast much in the way of radical steps forward. But it confirms the man is still very good at what he does. From front to back, Man About Town is a real pleasure, and it's pretty hard to get too much of that.” – AllMusic
