Best Covers: Mayer Hawthorne “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”

 Mayer Hawthorne has shared a slick studio rework of Tears For Fears‘ classic “Everybody Wants To Rule The World.” Retaining the retro guitar lines and lush synth lines of the original, Hawthorne provides his own unique rendition of the song’s iconic melodies. The driving drum arrangement of the original has also been swapped out for glossy pad beats that bring the multidisciplinary Michigan crooner’s effortlessly soulful tone to the fore.

Music by Bergman: Gabriel Garzón-Montano

With a Colombian father and French mother, the New Yorker Gabriel Garzón-Montano genuinely exemplifies the black and tropical movement currently shaping pop. Before releasing his debut album,Jardín (2017), he had already received support from pillars of the music community such as Mayer Hawthorne, who was the go-between between him and his label; Drake, who sampled his voice; and Lenny Kravitz, who called upon the artist to open for him on tour. In his music one can hear neo soul sophistication combined with hints of electronic and an exquisite sense of groove funk served on his own organic lattice.
