Listen: John Mayer - "Paper Doll"

"Paper Doll" is the rather unexpected but completely welcome new track from John Mayer and his upcoming --date TBA -- fall album Paradise Valley (Columbia). Mayer is currently wrapping up the new project in the studio with Don Was (Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt) prior to heading out in early July on an extensive 40-concert U.S. tour (see dates below). Mayer's tour will also bring awareness -- and financial support -- to American veterans suffering from the debilitating effects of post-traumatic stress. Mayer's tour and new album comes on the heels of his 2012 critically-praised, bestselling album Born and Raised, an album he described as "more organic, more natural lyrics and chords and artful simplicity." The new "Paper Doll" echoes that mindset with a gentle rhythmic pulse ans ringing guitar lines that flow with an ease reminiscent of Paul Simon's Graceland.

John Mayer - "Paper Doll" (from Paradise Valley) Buy: iTunes Amazon

 

 

Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician John Mayer released "Paper Doll" today, the first single from his forthcoming

Paradise Valley. Mayer first shared news of a new album through his tumblr blog on May 2.  John is currently in the studio finishing the album, which he and longtime collaborator Don Was are producing. Was has worked on albums for acts such as the Rolling Stones, B.B. King and Bonnie Raitt. 

 

Columbia Records previously announced that Mayer will kick off his first tour in three years on July 6, in Milwaukee.  The 40-stop U.S tour continues through early October, before heading to Europe for eight sold-out arena shows in four countries.  Mayer hits South America for the first time--Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo and the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro--in mid-September and all three shows are sold out.  He will also be performing at Philadelphia's annual Fourth of July Jam.

 

Mayer will use the U.S. tour to both raise funds for and heighten awareness of the effects of post traumatic stress on our military veterans.  One dollar from each tour ticket sold in the United States will go to the Northern California Institute for Research and Education.  Mayer partnered with NCIRE two years ago to create programs that help veterans return to healthy and productive civilian lives.

 

Mayer's previous albums-Room for Squares, Heavier Things, Continuum, live album Where the Light Is, Battle Studies and Born and Raised-have sold 20 million copies worldwide combined.  He has been honored with seven Grammy Awards and an additional 11 nominations.  He has also been included in Time Magazine's annual Time 100 list of the most influential contemporary thinkers, leaders, artists and entertainers, and twice been featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine's annual "Guitar" issue.  Last year, he was honored in Washington, D.C. by the Recording Academy for his philanthropic work on behalf of both U.S. military veterans and young people interested in music.
