TUXEDO ARE BACK!
I’ll toast to that.
The dopest dapper dudes are back to make sure you know that the funk is here to stay with their brand new track, “The Tuxedo Way”. It’s the perfect return for the duo, full of retro funk and boogie vibes. I’m a little obsessed with the glass clinking at the opening of the song as their little heads up that we’ll soon be toasting to the Tuxedo way of life.
“Tuxedo is music for celebrating,” the duo shared about the new song. “Yet, as we were working on new music, we realized, much to our surprise, that we didn’t actually have a quintessential celebration song in our catalog. ‘The Tuxedo Way’ is the answer to that problem.”
I love that Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One have this project to escape to when they need a breather from their respective solo efforts. Speaking of solo efforts, Hawthorne hinted in an update to fans that we can expect some new solo music from him as well.
I’ll toast to that.
If you’re looking to “dust your shoulders off and let your hair down” anytime soon, the Tuxedo fellas will be hitting the road for a North American tour starting in late July. Pre-sale tickets go on sale for the tour today (5/15) for those who subscribe to the Mayer Hawthorne or Tuxedo mailing lists, while tickets go on sale to the casuals/ general public on Friday the 17th. You can grab tickets over on their website.
