Amoeba will be giving away posters and holding a giveaway of a signed and framed Where Does This Door Go LP. Come by to listen and enter to win!

Following two successful albums, 2009’s A Strange Arrangement and 2011’s How Do You Do, Where Does This Door Go sees Hawthorne getting production help from Pharrell Williams, who’s on a roll lately, following his inclusion in Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. The album also features production by Jack Splash (Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar) and Oak of Pop & Oak (Nicki Minaj, Kanye West).

Hawthorne himself has described the new music as “Steely Dan meets the Beastie Boys.”

“The only rule I had when I went in to make this album was that it had to be fun,” he said.

Watch an adorable, animal-filled video for the smooth 'n' funky first single, "Her Favorite Song."
