It looks like John Mayer is feeling a lot better these days. After suffering from vocal cord inflammation and a condition called granuloma that forced him to cancel gigs in late 2010, the “Battle Studies” crooner has released a 60-second clip of his new song, “Shadow Days” via Tumblr. You can listen to it after the jump.

John Mayer – “Shadow Days”

“Shadow Days” will be the first single off his fifth studio album, Born and Raised, which will drop sometime this year. “I’m excited to share the first bit of sound from the album,” Mayer wrote. “Been looking forward to post like this since October 14, 2010, the first day I started writing the group of songs. Enjoy.”

With his health now in check, Mayer has been slated to perform at the New Orleans Jazz Fest in the spring, as well as SXSW next month. What do you think of the new track? Tell us in the comments below, or on Twitter and Facebook.
