John Mayer - "Who Says" & Other News
John Mayer officially released his new single, "Who Says" via Twitter this morning. The song has been circulating for a while, given the fact that John regularly plays the Hotel Cafe in California while working on new material. The official release date of his new album "Battle Studies" is November 17th, and so far he has announced 2 special shows with the John Mayer Trio. His 3rd Annual Holiday Revue will be at Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego on December 29th and he will also play The Joint @ Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve.
The tone of the lead single and other songs that have leaked is very introspective, as if he might be returning to a softer, acoustic side. "War of my Life" and "Heartbreak Warfare" have a sense of honesty that people rarely see, since he is usually shown in tabloids as a drunken bafoon. Honestly, I could give a shit about who he's dating, or how much his jeans cost. He makes great music and puts on an amazing live show. Fall/Winter tour details will be coming shortly. Right now, you get the first single and the other link is to a full, "secret" show earlier this year.
