[Download] Mayer Hawthorne - "I Need You" (Prod By Nottz)

Pre-order for 1-sided 12" produced by Nottz backed with etching by Freegums. The vocal & instrumental of “I Need You” are both on one side of this single. The flip side contains an etching by Miami illustrator Freegums, who we hooked up with a couple months back for the Mayer Hawthorne x Huf T-shirt & song collaboration. The record is packaged in plastic with a 12x12 insert. Check out the track below courtesy of Stones Throw Records.

Mayer Hawthorne explains the story behind this record:

“I met Nottz at Nightlife's Dilla Tribute in L.A. and we just kept in contact. I had always been a fan of Nottz since the 90s. He sent me a bunch of beats and at first I had no idea what to do with any of them, but eventually it hit me. I sang a hook for him on his album as well.

The song is a cover of a cat named Otis Leville which is one of my all time fav soul sides, but relatively unknown 45. I don't think Nottz even knew it. I actually even made up some of the words because no one could make out what he said in the original. ha!

When Nottz sent me that batch - that particular beat stood out. It had the same chord progression as the Otis Leville, so I just went with it.”
