John Mayer Released Album Info

John Mayer

John Mayer has been a little hush about his new album, something that is new to the former over-sharing singer. In the last few month since the announcement that he would be releasing his first new album since his vocal hiatus, the singer has only released lead single, “Paper Doll” and the recently released, “Wildfire.”

Earlier in the day it was revealed that Mayer would have several guests on his new album including Frank Ocean. According to Rolling Stone magazine, Ocean will lend his voice for “Wildfire” even though the song’s lyric video had been released about a month ago.

Mayer in the past has shown that he is a fan of the singer, especially when he performed guitar on Ocean’s “White” which was featured on his hit album channelOrange. But that’s not where Mayer’s relationship with Ocean ends; Mayer was featured in the music video for “Pyramids” as well as performed alongside him on Saturday Night Live. 

Also making an appearance on the album is Mayer’s lady-love and one of our favorite pop star, Katy Perry. The duo, who have been in an “on-again-off-again” relationship for a while will perform together on a country-tinged song titled, “Who You Love.” When interviewed during Milwaukee’s SummerFest, Mayer praises Perry for being patient with him during his vocal recovery and how he feels the most happy now than he has before in the past. Remember that Mayer does have a laundry list of prior high-profiled relationships.

Mayer’s new album, Paradise Valley is scheduled to be released on August 20 through Columbia Records.

John Mayer Releases New Track

mayer

Last week, word had been released that John Mayer would be once again releasing a new track, but this one would be called, “Dear Marie.”

Surprise to fans when it turned out that the song was not the one that had been announced, but rather another new track from the singer’s new album, Paradise Valley. Turns out, the new track is instead, “Wildfire.”

The song can currently be streamed below, but if you’re truly digging it, you can head on over to iTunes and buy it.

Paradise Valley is scheduled to be released on August 20, while no statement have been made as to why Mayer (or maybe his people?) decided last-minute to switch the song that would make its singles debut today.

John Mayer Releases New Song

pv

Last week, John Mayer revealed that he would be releasing a brand new song sometime this week, and today was the lucky day. The new song is titled, “Paper Doll” and will be featured on his first new album in two years which Mayer has confirmed to be called, Paradise Valley.

The rumor mills have already started circulating, stating that the song might be a revenge song about a certain blonde, country “darling” who wrote a very mean song about him. The line of “You’re like 22 girls in one/ And none of them know what they’re running from/  Was it just too far to fall/ For a little paper doll” already have conspiracy theorist looking into detail at the lyrics (the number 22 is obviously the evidence).

But then again, maybe people have way too much free time on their hands. You can listen to the song below and watch some prancercising during it. I know, random.

John Mayer Back on Tour

John Mayer

Following a three-year break and a vocal hiatus brought on by throat issues, John Mayer has announced that he will be returning to the stage once again in support of his 2012 release, Born and Raised. The tour is set to kick off on July 6 at Milwaukee’s SummerFest and continue all the way into October.

Mayer’s tour is set to go to 40 cities and four countries including some of the world’s most well-known venues like, the Hollywood Bowl, Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Rock in Rio in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Mayer’s opening act will be “American Idol” winner, Phillip Phillips. The “Home” crooner is scheduled to open for the singer on his tour for majority of the tour stops.

Mayer isn’t taking this touring thing lightly because he is currently scheduled to perform at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on April 25 and then the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 26. These tour dates will be the first time in over three years that Mayer has done a tour after he was diagnosed with throat granuloma which forced him to cancel tour plans that were already in action. His throat condition also made him have to push back his album a few years while his throat got better.

Mayer was recent quoted as saying, “The greatest gift I have in my life is the opportunity to play again, which is also the opportunity to dream again,” he says about getting a second shot at singing. “My dreams were in escrow, but when I found out this thing in my throat had receded, the most exciting thing for me was having a second chance at a new life. My dreams have come true twice. That’s really cool.”
