Rather than adhering to conventional wisdom and realising a set of new songs as a single cohesive album, John Mayer has chosen to pave his own path with his latest batch of songs coming out in monthly waves.
Towards the end of January we got the first wave, consisting of four songs, and we are most certainly very close to wave two.
For the first wave Mayer has created a delicious sampler which features his enthralling vocals, which seem to have me falling in love all over again with every single listen. Opening track ‘Moving On and Getting Over’ is the strongest of the four tracks as Mayer returns to his blues roots.
This is an exciting time for Mayer fans as they are guaranteed to receive new music for the foreseeable future, and if these four tracks are anything to go by the future is paved in both rainbows and love hearts. (JA)
