As many of you know, John Mayer has released a new album with a different sound and vibe connected to it. Yes his voice is the same and he still plays the guitar. No surprises there. But he has a country twang to a few songs and long gorgeous locks to go along with it.
This album is called Born and Raised and is made up of twelve tracks.
Queen of California
The Age of Worry
Speak For Me
Something Like Olivia
Born and Raised
If I Ever Get Around To Living
Love Is A Verb
Walt Grace’s Submarine Test, January 1967
Whiskey, Whiskey, Whiskey
A Face To Call Home
Born and Raised – Reprise
I personally love John not just because he’s John Mayer, but also because his music fits several different situations and moods, which means you can always have a time to listen to John. Makes him kind of special compared to other artists that only have a certain vibe or set of songs that stay in the same genre.
From John’s Tumblr, he writes, “The making of this record was purposely undocumented, but there are a few iPhone videos and some photos to share. I figure I’ll do that here, and more often than I usually have in the past. Even if this album slides off the charts in a month, it doesn’t make it any less special to me, and we should all be digging this music together, like we would have (and will again) on stage.”
While keeping up to date with John on Tumblr, it feels like he’s relaxed a lot since everything with Taylor Swift and other stars drama. He hasn’t been in the news a lot and has kept to himself. I like that though. Some stars just look better and sound better when others aren’t skewing their appearance.
Check his new stuff out; I’m sure there is a song or two for everyone.
