    Renaissance man Mayer Hawthorne and producer Jake One (Drake, Snoop Dogg, Fun.) teamed up and will release their self-titled debut album Tuxedo via Stones Throw Records on March 3, 2015.

    Tuxedo are Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Jake One (Taurus). They are descendants of the one-word moniker family of funk, where you will find such groups as Chic, Shalamar and Zapp.

    Sexy! Classy!

    The Tuxedo collaboration began with an exchange of mixtapes back in 2006. The fruits of a long-standing kinship were three tracks that mysteriously showed up on Internet doorsteps nearly two years ago. In between personal projects, these three tracks became a full album's worth of Tuxedo.

    The album was mixed by original disco don dada John Morales at his home studio in South Plainfield, New Jersey. "I flew out there," Mayer says. "His wife made me spaghetti and everything."

    Check out the funkdafied "Do It."
