Mayer Hawthorne and Chromeo happen to share more than an affinity for seminal blue-eyed soul outfit Hall & Oates. They also apparently like to work together or, at least, they like to remix one another. After Mayer got his hands on Chromeo’s “When the Night Falls,” the latter returned the favor and remixed the former’s new single, “A Long Time.” It essentially ups the ass-shaking ante with a healthy dose of synthesizers and other appropriately ’80s-influenced tricks. Do we smell an all-out collaborative project in the future? Cross your fingers, y’all.
You can download the remix directly here. Mayer’s sophomore album, How Do You Do, drops Oct. 11 and you can expect treats like this leading up to its release as part of #MayerMondays.
