This will certainly hold us over until his new album is finally ready!
Tony Bennett teamed up with the likes of Lady GaGa and the late Amy Winehouse for his album Duets II: The Great Performances, but for his latest single, One For My Baby (And One More for the Road), he is joined by none other than John Mayer!
Ch-ch-check out the just-released music video (above)!
John's voice really lends itself well to this kind of jazz!
How about U?
Musical heartthrob John Mayer underwent surgery last Thursday to treat his throat condition, known as Granuloma.
He had tried alternatives to treat the inflamed nodule near his vocal cord in an effort to avoid an operation, but had no luck, explaining:
"It’s been a very long process in waiting to see if time was an alternative to surgery, but even given two weeks’ voice rest (along with many other approaches), there was no change for the better."
He is now recovering after the successful surgery and is on "complete vocal rest for a month or more." Unfortunately for fans, this means a delay for his upcoming album Born and Raised.
While he's resting his voice, the singer says he's "taking off". More specifically, he plans on "going to travel the country, look, and listen."
We hope this month goes by quick because we can't wait to hear John's new material!

Sucks! This sounds like such a pain!
John Mayer was forced to postpone the release of his latest album, Born and Raised, after discovering a granuloma above his vocal cords, and took this blog yesterday to announce that he successfully underwent surgery to take care of the issue, and is now on complete vocal rest for the next month - and possibly longer!
John Mayer revealed yesterday that due to a throat condition, he's been forced to cancel not only his upcoming singing engagements, but also delay the release of his new album, Born and Raised!
After several months of going week to week monitoring and hoping to correct the condition, I am forced to cancel my upcoming singing engagements due to something next to my vocal cords called a granuloma.
I’m bummed to have to bow out of both the iheartradio Music Festival in Las Vegas and an appearance with Tony Bennett in Los Angeles. I know there were people depending on me to be there and I’m sorry that I can’t be on those stages.
‘Born and Raised’ is complete as far as music recording, song selection, and in some cases mixing, but because of this condition I couldn’t finish singing on several of the tracks. This means the record will be released next year instead of this fall or winter.
This is a temporary setback, though I’m not sure how long or short a period of time it will be. I’ve got the best doctors in the country looking after me and I will be singing and touring again as soon as I get the all clear. Until then I’ll be spending time writing and composing more music and kicking an empty soup can around the West Village.
I’m looking forward to seeing you again soon. Until then take good care.
These things do happen, sometimes, though, and we're sure your voice will be much better off in the long run if you take the time now to take care of yourself!

Eh. The grunge resurgence is over. Get a hair cut. LOLz.
John Mayer was spotted in Los Angeles this week, sporting a return to a longer do.
Maybe he's trying to fly under the radar? Didn't really need the long hair for that though.
That's our subtle hint in asking you to make more music John. DO IT!
