Good for Mayer Hawthorne! After totally busting his butt to promote his 2009 release A Strange Arrangement, Motor City's most favorite crooner is fortunate enough to have Mazda sponsor his upcoming national tour, courtesy of the 2011 MAZDA2 subcompact 5-door hatchback.
Sponsorship of the tour includes fans getting an up-close look at tour life via daily posts complete with downloadable content. There will also be meet and greets opportunities for fans to hang out with Hawthorne throught the tour.
What could be more exciting than hearing that Mayer Hawthorne is heading your way?? A FREE DOWNLOAD OF SOMETHING YOU HAVEN'T HEARD BEFORE!
"No Strings" is a fun little tune with a little teeny syth kick that I'm not used to hearing, but Hawthorne wears it well.
