John Mayer drops first wave of ‘The Search for Everything’

T.G.I.F. Not only is it the weekend, John Mayer has just released the first wave of his anticipated new album The Search for Everything and after listening, we are genuinely happy. Or sad. Or perhaps, a mix of both together.

“My heart’s racing. These songs represent literally hundreds of hours of living inside of these little worlds. And more to come,” he tweeted shortly after the soulful four tracks became available.

Mayer continued to share information regarding the album, including those deserving of credit.

The 39-year-old released the upcoming record’s lead single “Love on the Weekend” in November. It was the first time he dropped new music since his 2014 cover of Beyonce’s “XO.” When midnight struck, fans hopped on the opportunity to stream his never-before-heard songs, “Moving On and Getting Over,” “Changing” and “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me.” The album’s title, #thesearchforeverything was immediately a trending topic on Twitter.

“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 late last year. “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.”
