Even though he’s still basking in the success of his current stella release “Continuum” and touring accordingly, John Mayer reported on his blog today that work is already underway for tracks for his next album:
My first night in the studio post-CONTINUUM… Always a scary thing to reapproach the drawing board, but I love the beatdown… The music I want to make now feels very complex, almost…GULP….experimentational? (Famous last words, I know.)
…In the fifties, jazz was known as “modern music”, and somehow these days it seems downright futuristic by comparison. I’m chomping at the bit to find out how to make the 200X version of “modern music”… Here goes everything…
I CANNOT WAIT to see what he comes up with. I’ve been a massive fan for ages now. I also love artists that can “re-invent” themselves with each release, and “Continuum” was definitely a successful example of this.
