After staying indie for many years, whether he was rapping, singing or DJing, Mayer Hawthorne has gone major and signed with Universal Republic. The label will release the soulman's sophomore debut, How Do You Do, this fall. It will be his first proper effort since 2009's very good, A Strange Arrangement.
Although details surrounding the album remain minimal, he apparently has a new single out today called "A Long Time."
I know people have been speculating on these boards for a while now on whether or not Andrew Cohen would sign with a major.
