John Mayer‘s first single off his upcoming album Born and Raised has finally been announced… it’s called “Shadow Days.” I like it, and I’m glad he’s back to singing about love. Here’s a 60 second snippet….
I hate that he used the phrase “it sucks” in his lyrics, because that’s sh*t sounds super low budget to me… but there are worse things in life. At least he didn’t say “crunk” or something.
What do you think about my hubby’s new song? His music usually has to grow on me, though.
Some news about my hubby! Apparently the release date I wrote about for his upcoming album, supposedly titled Born and Raised, was way off. I figured, it’s September and it was supposed to be out in October. If that were the case, he would’ve had a single on the radio and would be promoting that shit hard. So…….. yeah, unfortunately no album next month.
Good news is, we got SOME official news about the album! His management says that they’re still working on it. But judging by John’s lack of online presence (which stealz his good thought nuggets and lyrics), I’m guessing he’s busy in the studio.
He also did an interview for the I Heart Radio music festival (has that happened yet?) and talked about how he’s approaching writing music for his new album. Basically he doesn’t give a shit what we think anymore. I mean, he said it a lot nicer than that. But that’s essentially what he said.
I think it’s a good thing. He seriously over-thinks everything he does/says/writes/etc. It’s like he’s insecure. I like him best when he’s himself. I’m sure we’ll all love whatever it is that he releases because he’s got so much talent built up in that body that it’s impossible for him to make something bad (unless Kanye West is involved). Here’s a short clip of the interview:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
His management also left us with a teaser for some upcoming project.Maybe he’ll rekindle his old television show? Maybe? Did you know John had a short-lived television show? Enjoy that video below. It’s worth it, TRUST.
John Mayer debuted this new song, “Love is the Verb,” at a charity event in NYC recently. I love it! Well, of course I love it. But I especially love this one. I’m so glad to hear him singing love songs again. His last 2 albums haven’t been very lovey-dovey which makes me sad because he has such a way with words, and us ladies love love songs.
John debuted this song, “Queen of California,” at the Tiger Jam in April. It’s folky/countryish? I’m not sure what I think about it. I don’t dislike it, but I don’t know if I like it yet. His songs always grow on me so maybe I’ll listen to it some more.
Overall still very very excited for his album Born and Raised, which is coming out in October (supposedly).

SO EXCITING. During his May 16th “In Support Of Our Troops” benefit, John announced that his next album will be titled “Born and Raised” (the title of one of his recently debuted singles) and is set to be released sometime in October 2011.
Here’s a live, rough performance of the song, “Born and Raised.” I can’t wait for a studio version to come out. Very Bluesy. Very soothing. Very John.
