John Mayer is back in the studio! The singer-songwriter’s Facebook page was updated this afternoon (May 28) with the following post: “John is recording his 6th studio album. Check back every Tuesday for more Studio Session videos to see what’s going on behind the scenes.” Since today happens to be a Tuesday, Mayer has released the first such video, which includes a noodly riff and a brief snippet of a new song. Check it out below.
After taking a lengthy break from music following throat surgery (including a two-year hiatus from live performances), Mayer earlier this year announced an extensive summer tour, his first in three years. Phillip Phillips will join him as the opener.
