Just 2 days ago I was having a conversation with a record rep from Columbia Records and she was talking about John Mayer and that he's been working on a new album and that it will be out sometime this spring. However, she hadn't heard any of the songs from the album but was looking forward to it though.

Well, yesterday afternoon John Mayer posted a clip of a new song on his Tumblr page.

John writes,

Here’s a clip of the first single off Born and Raised, called “Shadow Days.” I’m excited to share the first bit of sound from the album… Been looking forward to a post like this since October 14, 2010, the first day I started writing this group of songs. Enjoy."

John has been working on the new album for quite some time now. It was scheduled to come out last year but was delayed because he had to undergo vocal cord surgery (much like Adele had to do), but now is doing just fine.

We also talked about John Mayer's upcoming tour dates. He'll play the WinStar Hotel & Casino March 15th & 16th in Thackerville, OK and then be in Austin for SXSW playing at Stubb's BBQ on March 17th then wrap up his mini-tour at the New Orleans Jazz Festival on April 29th.

There's been no release date set for the new album, which is titled Born and Raised, just yet. So in the mean time check out the minute long snippet of the song and let me know what you think about it!
