John Mayer sets release date for first wave of new album

Hello 2017, you’re already off to a great start.

Not only is the new year upon us, so is the latest music from John Mayer.

The “Gravity” singer took to Instagram to share a series of images that compile the artwork for his long awaited album.

“Here we go,” Mayer captions the first of nine photos.

Mayer concludes the posts by spilling not only the album title, but when fans can finally hear some new music. “The Search for Everything. Wave One 1/20/17”

In November, Mayer dropped “Love On The Weekend,” the album’s lead single. The Search for Everything will be Mayer’s first record in three years. He also revealed that he will be touring in the spring; however, no dates have been released just yet.

“Next year is a year of more music coming than I’ve ever put out in one year,” Mayer told fans during a live Q&A back in November. “That’s really sort of what my career has been, it’s what my life has been, it’s the way that my mind works — it sort of consumes everything. That is very true to the nature of the record, which is sort of like a mixtape of all the music that inspires me and all the styles that I’ve made before, but certainly in my own certain way of doing it.”

We are counting down the days until January 20!
