LISTEN: John Mayer's New Album Is Basically an Ode to Katy Perry
By: Joe Hyer
John Mayer dropped his seventh studio album today (April 14).
The album, The Search for Everything, is definitely the most vulnerable album that we’ve heard from the 39-year-old singer. We had already heard several tracks from this album as Mayer dropped several of the album's tracks at the beginning of the year.
John Mayer and Katy Perry split in 2014. Mayer said that the feelings he experienced after that breakup played a significant autobiographical role in this album, which is his first since the 2013 release of Paradise Valley.
"I actually, for the first time in my life, believe I recorded exactly what I was feeling," he told Rolling Stone.
Most notably, Mayer said that the song “Still Feel Like Your Man” was definitely about Perry.
“Who else would I be thinking about? And by the way, it’s a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years,” he told the New York Times.
One of our other favorite tracks from the album is “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me:”
Mayer’s Search for Everything Tour continues through the end of the summer.
