Mayer Hawthorne has just released a new song that is a slower funk tune. The new song is called “Rare Changes.”Hawthorne has over 700,000 listeners on his Spotify page, and his music definitely does not disappoint. The new song starts with a bright intro that immediately sets a mood for the rest of the song. The new song alludes to the routine that people can tend to get into. “Rare Changes,” is a choice name for the song because that is exactly what the lyrics are speaking of. The constant cycle of life, where nothing happens for a long time and then something happens that is, for lack of a better term, a rare change.
Hawthorne’s new song can also be described as a song about getting into the comfort level of a new relationship after getting out of the honeymoon phase. The part of the relationship where there aren’t a ton of new things to discover about your partner anymore, and how that can be a beautiful thing.
Andrew Mayer Cohen, Hawthorne’s brith name, is also in two musical groups. He is a part of the group Tuxedo and also Jaded Incorporated. The 41 year old artist has been nominated for a grammy for “Best Box Set or Special Limited Edition Package.”
Hawthorne says in the song, “It’s been a long time/Nothing happening, same as before/Am I awake or am I sleeping/Over and over/’Til I think I can’t take any more/Love you forever/Wouldn’t change a thing.” Alluding to the idea that constant routine isn’t always as entertaining as one would like it to be.
