Are you ready for the duo of Saxsquatch & Oates? John Oates teamed up with the sax playing bigfoot for a new electro-pop version of the Hall & Oates classic “Maneater. Check out the official music video.
John Oates said in a statement, “I’ve had a lot of otherworldly experiences in my career, but none as mystical and magical as this collab with the amazing, soulful Saxsquatch. He brings the funk out of the forest and puts a smile on the face of the world. Meeting him in the woods to shoot the video was a life-changing moment. As soon as we began recording, I knew we had something special. The mark of a good song is that it can be reimagined in lots of ways, and this is, without a doubt, the coolest version I’ve ever heard.” Saxsquatch added, “I like music that gets people’s big feet tapping along. It’s been a tough year for everyone. We could all use music and stories that help us dance and feel less alone. I know a lot about feeling alone.”
As for Hall & Oates, they recently confirmed their rescheduled 2021 tour dates.
