After taking time off due to vocal issues, John Mayer is preparing for a new album. He debuted a new guitar at the National Association of Music Merchants Conference. Only 25 of these guitars were produced. Mayer will keep two, one which he will play and the other he will store, and he said the guitar’s sound will lay the foundation for his next album.
Mayer asked himself, “What would it sound like if I wrote an album of cowboy songs on this guitar under the stars?” He went on to say the next album will have simpler chord structures and more natural lyrics. There’s no word on how far along Mayer is with the writing or recording.
Do you think Mayer can pull off the cowboy sound?
