Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician John Mayer
has announced that his new album, 'Born and Raised', will be
released on 21st May. The first single, 'Shadow Days,' is available
on iTunes now and the video is available to watch below.
Mayer, 34, has been sidelined since last September with a
granuloma in his throat which had to be operated on. He was forced
to cancel several shows and step out of the limelight to
Mayer explained the condition in an open letter to fans posted
on his blog, a portion of which reads:
"During rehearsal on Tuesday, it came to mind that I should see
my throat doctor because something didn't feel/sound right. I went
in for a visit on Wednesday and a scope of my vocal cords revealed
that the granuloma has grown back where it had mostly healed. This
is bad news. Because of this, I have no choice but to take an
indefinite break from live performing. Though there will be a day
when all of this will be behind me, it will sideline me for a
longer period of time than I care to have you count down."
Despite the setbacks, the musician is still set to release his
fifth studio album "Born and Raised" on May 21st(UK), 22nd(US).
The music video for the first single from the record, "Shadow
Days" was released at the weekend and can be watched below:
