A month after John Mayer’s drummer Steve Jordan accidentally revealed to Entertainment Tonight that a new album in the works, the singer-songwriter releases his new single in 3 years.
John Mayer first hinted that something was brewing when he tweeted, “Mixes and meetings and photo shoots and finishing touches. Pop Music I’m comin’ back…”
“Love on the Weekend” officially premiered via a Facebook Live session by the artiste himself right from his studio. During the big reveal, he also confirmed that he will touring starting spring (sometime after March) next year, shortly after his new album is released.
The romantic song is reminiscent of John Mayer’s “relaxed pop rock coupled with a bit of blues” style from his earlier albums. In it, he sings, “You be the DJ, I’ll be the driver. You put your feet up in the getaway car. I’m flying fast like a, a wanted man. I want you, baby, like you can’t understand.”
It’s true music to our ears, and so apt that this is released on a Friday ;)
Listen to it here:
John Mayer’s last studio album, “Paradise Valley”, was released back in 2013. His 7th studio album, rumoured to be titled “The Search for Everything”, is expected to be released next year. In his words, “Very soon, I promise.”
