John Oates

Posted on 24 March 2021 by Brian Walsh

John Oates, in collaboration with a saxophone-playing sasquatch, has released a new version of the Hall & Oates classic “Maneater.”

Speaking about the revamped version, Oates said, “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,” Oates said in a statement. “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.”

“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,” Saxsquatch added.

While Daryl Hall is featured on lead vocals on the original 1982 single, Oates takes the role in the new version.
