Well, nobody saw this coming!
Well... it's who he left the club with that's causing a stir:
John Mayer has burst into fiery wonder and emerged from the “shadows,” true phoenix style.
After a loooong hiatus, the pop/easy-listening master of mellow has recently been teasing fans with song snippets and cover art for his upcoming album Born and Raised and he is FINALLY delivering something substantial.
This week, John leaked the FULL version of his track, “Shadow Days” on Cities97 Radio, although the song's official release date is March 6th.
So head to your room, draw the shades, plug in your headphones, click on the video (above) and
take a listen chillllll.
Do U like Johnny’s new song???
Oooo very Steampunk! If you put a key into the cover will it come to LIFE???
Now he's all set to go on his spring tour, which will culminate in the album’s release on May 22nd.
We hope he does a whole Old West, Steampunk themed tour! No more mellow and understated…it makes us sleeeeppppyyy.
Do U like Johnny’s new album cover???
He's comin' back, America!!
It's been two years since he's been on tour, but John Mayer is ready for another roadtrip!! John plans on playing 18 shows to promote his upcoming album — Born and Raised.
And get this!! John's actually doing some good with this tour!! He's raising money for the Northern Califronia Institute of Research and Education!! Yes!!
It's been while, dude. We thought maybe you had forsaken your guitar forever!
John Mayer has been MIA for the better part of the last year, popping up here and there, but definitely not putting out any new music. We assumed he either decided to become a NYC hermit or was diligently punching out some stellar new music that are ears just weren't ready for yet. Thankfully, it turns out to be the latter!
Released via his blog this morning, John shared a teaser of this new song Shadow Days. It's definitely more of this rockabilly style than his pop-y jams, but it's got a very pretty tone to it! We like!
Check out the video (above) to listen to Shadow Days for yourself and let us know what U think!
Good stuff? Or do you miss his Body Is A Wonderful vibe?
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?
Which we don't think he realizes is the same thing as tweeting … but with more characters.
John Mayer has taken to his
micro-blog to discuss a very serious issue: sarcasm. JM is taking issue with the lack of sincerity in mankind right now, and he is hoping his words will inspire more people to be genuine.
