Stream: Tuxedo - "2nd Time Around" *disco/funk

Short link
I love the future disco/funk vibes of Tuxedo and I'm so excited to share the first release from their upcoming album Tuxedo II (pre-order) out March 24 through Stones Throw Records. "2nd Time Around" continues the impressive upbeat debut release Tuxedo dropped in 2015 and I can't wait for this 2nd album as it will be wholly original yet still draw influence from the future funk wobble of Zapp, Gap, Jam/Lewis and Junie Morrison, while nodding lyrically to Mtume, Jodeci and Cameo. Tuxedo is Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One. The crystallization of their 2nd album's concept comes courtesy of its message of universal love; thanks to the signature combination of soul and pop sensibility that have come to define Mayer's hook. I can't wait to hear the full length, definitely buying this album when it drops!
