John Mayer Releases 'Paradise Valley' Today
|Aug 20 2013|
Grammy Award-winning guitarist, singer, songwriter John Mayer releases his new album entitled Paradise Valley today (August 20). Legendary producer Don Was helms the set which features a duet with Katy Perry called "Who You Love" and the lead single "Paper Doll," his not-so-subtle response to Taylor Swift's tune "Dear John." The album title is Mayer's nod to the scenic area of Montana near Yellowstone Park where he has lived since his vocal troubles in 2012 forced him to take a break from touring and singing. Billboard describes the album as an "autumnal, jazzy take on late-'70s rock records from Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac." Mayer tells Billboard he considers Paradise Valley a "summer, cook breakfast, outdoors-y" record. John is currently on the road with his "Born and Raised Tour" with a stop in Bethel, NY tonight.
