Mayer Hawthorne will hit the road this spring for a tour in support of his latest album, How Do You Do. The soul singer and his backing band, The County, will visit Massachusetts and play Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on Saturday, April 21. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $18.

How Do You Do, Hawthorne’s sophomore release and highly anticipated follow-up to 2009’s A Strange Arrangement, hit stores last October. Legendary Rapper Snoop Dog provides guest vocals on “Can’t Stop”. The video for lead single “Dreaming” is streaming below.

“I really wanted to smash all of my musical influences into one record,” explained the Michigan native in a recent interview with The Age. “I grew up listening and loving all kinds of music, not just soul music from Motown. A Strange Arrangement is very derivative and a year later I wondered what I was doing, because I don’t live in some sixties soul world.”
