In the years since his last album, John Mayer has kept a considerably low profile. The singer/songwriter’s 2013 release Paradise Valley was met with fair acclaim, but little has happened since. Now, Mayer has surprise dropped a new single titled “Love on the Weekend,” which you can listen to in full above.
Sonically this is a big shift for Mayer, whose recent work has been characterized by an exploration into more soulful, bluesy territory. Now it seems that he is returning to his more pop-oriented work, the kind of work that saw him rise into the stratosphere of pop music. No concrete details are out regarding his next full-length, but he has stated that more music will be coming very soon.
Listen to “Love on the Weekend” above and stay tuned for further release information on John Mayer’s upcoming full-length.
