Fans of John Mayer should be getting pretty excited for the upcoming release of his seventh studio album in the coming weeks and his first solo tour since 2014 to follow. Initially on Sunday and again on Monday, Mayer revealed the artwork for his upcoming album, which has been titled The Search For Everything, and will be released on January 20 via Columbia Records, apparently in multiple parts.
According to the post on Mayer’s Facebook on Monday, "The Search for Everything" Wave One 1/20/17. The album will be released four songs at a time. Every month. There were too many songs to ever get out the door at once.” The first four tracks to be released later this month will be “Moving on and Getting Over,” “Changing,” “Love on the Weekend,” and “You're Gonna Live Forever in Me.”
“Love on the Weekend” was released early last month as the album’s first single. The song made its live debut in a performance on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show alongside Maroon 5 guitarist, James Valentine, and can be seen in the video below.
John will set out on tour for his solo career this spring, only to rejoin his Dead & Company bandmates for a run of summer dates before going back to playing his solo stuff for second half of summer run of solo concerts.
