After a hiatus from music after throat surgery, John Mayer is officially back and in the studio. Mayer's Facebook page was updated yesterday afternoon with the post: “John is recording his 6th studio album. Check back every Tuesday for more Studio Session videos to see what’s going on behind the scenes.”
Since yesterday was Tuesday, we have the first of the videos below! The video gives us a taste of Mayer's new music with a short twangy guitar riff and a short snippet of vocals. After Mayer said in an interview that voice surgery changed his voice "completely," it's unsure what we can expect from this new studio album. Only more "Studio Sessions" can tell.
Mayer also announced tour dates earlier this year with opener Phillip Phillips. This will be Mayer's first tour in three years.
