Last month video from John Mayer's April 15th show in Australia made the rounds after he covered Beyonce's hit song, XO. John of course made the song his own, playing acoustic guitar and adding harmonica.
Today, we get a studio version that keeps the harmonica, and even adds some piano. My guess is this is a bit of a gift to fans (and Jay Z), following the announcement that John Mayer will headline the Made In America Festival in LA, Labor Day weekend.
The Made In America Festival is curated by Jay Z, and entering its third year. Although the festival began in Philadelphia, this year it has expanded to LA as well, both taking place over the same weekend.
John Mayer will headline the LA version, along with Kendrick Lamar, Juanes, Weezer, Chance the Rapper and many more. The Philadelphia stop will be headlined by Kanye West and Kings of Leon, along with The National, Pharrell, Chromeo, Girl Talk and many more. Tickets for both destinations are currently on sale.
If you can't make it to LA, John will also be playing the Food Network In Concert, at Ravinia on September 20th. Tickets are on sale.
