Tuxedo Drops An Extra Dose Of Funk On 'Without Your Love'

Tuxedo-Black-Suits- Stare

Tuxedo definitely brought the funk on their self-titled debut album earlier this year. So much so that it hasn't left our rotation around SBHQ. Whether it was "Number One," "R U Ready," "The Right Time," "Do It" or the many other jams on the album, it's kept us grooving. But we'd be lying if we didn't say that all that goodness didn't leave us wanting more. Lucky for us, the duo had one more joint in the chamber, and they've just shared it with the rest of the world.

"Without Your Love," which was originally a Japan-only bonus track from Tuxedo, is more of the '80s-inspired new funk that we've come to know and love from Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One. Lyrically, Mayer is pleading for another chance at love, but if we're being honest, it's all about this instrumentation. An elastic synth bass line meets funky rhythm guitar, electric keys and even digital horns for a silky R&B workout that's sure to have you dancing. They let it bloom and flourish in parts, really allowing the listener to get into the groove and maybe even cut a two-step or three.

Unfortunately, though the song is nice, it's not available for purchase here in the States. But maybe if you catch the duo on tour this summer (tickets for which are available on their site), they might be nice enough to perform it for you. In the meantime, you can stream "Without Your Love" right here.
