Today John Mayer released Born and Raised, his fifth studio album. Mayer once again takes to a new direction in his music stylings - this time with a focus on folk and Americana. You can hear heavy influences from Bob Dylan, Neil Young, David Crosby, and Graham Nash. Some people are calling this his best album yet. Here Billboard breaks out each of the songs on his new track in detail.
You all should know by now that I absolutely LOVE Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, so any new about them is BIG news. My good friend at TheMusicIsh.com posted this today and I had to share it:
It’s been quite some time since we last heard anything new out of Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. I’ve been waiting for this day to come for a long time. The first single from their upcoming album, Here, just got released, and it’s entitled ‘Man On Fire.’ It starts off a bit slow, but culminates into a joyous celebration of folk music. It’s a catchy singalong that reminds us all why we fell in love with Alex, Jade and the rest of the crew. Here is set to release May 29th, and if you thought you were excited before, give this track a listen and get back to me. The 29th couldn’t come any sooner.
