It's rare that I do a music post, but I'm so excited about John Mayer's upcoming album, I had to share. I've been a John Mayer fan since the beginning of his career, but have loved every new album more than the one before. His new album, titled "Born and Raised," is a little bit folk, rock, pop, and soul all wrapped into one. I'm not sure I'm loving his new long hair look (he's wearing a hat that looks like the one that Shooter wore in "Secret Window" if you saw that film), but he's still looking good.
I also love, love, love the album cover art...check it out above. John posted some photos of his video shoot for "Shadow Days" on his Tumblr. Here they are:
And here's John sharing the CD and cover art a few days ago:
Here's the video for the first single to be released, "Shadow Days"
Are you as excited as I am? The album is released today on itunes.
