As Emma Stone once said in the popular film, Friends With Benefits, “It’s John f–king Mayer!” — And, he’s here with new music! John Mayer, 40, released “New Light” on May 10, where he joined Zane Lowe of Beats 1, who premiered the track. The song, which is co-produced by Mayer himself and No I.D., became available at 10 PM PST. “New Light” is seemingly, according to fans, part one of a multi-“Night” series. The catchy new track marks the Dead & Company vocalist/guitarist’s first since last year’s The Search For Everything. — Listen to “New Light” above!
“I’m the boy in your other phone. Lighting up inside your drawer at home, all alone,” Mayer sings, leaving listeners on a cliffhanger. Who are you talking about, John? — Inquiring minds need to know! He later sings “pushin’ 40 in the friend zone,” which we’re sure will be social media’s newest viral tag line. Speaking of the lyrics, “This song was not easy to write lyrically,” Mayer told Lowe. “It just wasn’t. It was written out of sequence… There’s code-cracking involved.” The new song is listed as being released on Mayer’s own label Snack Money.
