John Mayer and Don Was, 6/9/11.
SpongeBob gets photobombed by John Mayer and Don Was 6/9/11.
.What I’ve gathered: John Mayer is working on a new album tentatively titled “Born and Raised”, not to be confused with Gaga’s “Born This Way” or Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” or THE BEST “Born” album “Born to Run”.
The new music may be Dyanesque, lots of harmonica in the acoustic secret shows. Don Was is producing, Aaron Sterling is on drums and Chuck Leavell on piano/keyboards. ..and apparently
1. Ricky Van Veen is hanging out late at night in the studio with them taking photos.
2. Sometimes John just pops into the studio during his 10 mile run to discuss auto-tune.
.3. John may have given Don those shoes and Don may have let John borrow a hat or two. They maybe have contests about who can wear the funniest headgear.
.4. John is probably enjoying Jimi Hendrix’s spirit floating around Electric Lady Studios.
.5. I have heard some people say this tour may be referred to as “the gun show”
,.Songs that may or may not make the cut:
..1. Whiskey, Whiskey, Whiskey. 2. Age of Worry. 3. Something Like Olivia. 4. Portable Heart. 5. A Break In The Clouds. 6. Born And Raised. 7. Queen of California. 8. It Takes A Fool. 9. A Face To Call Home. 10. Show Me Something I Can Be. 11. Shadow Days. 12. Love is a Verb.
My two favorites so far are “Show Me Something I Can Be” and “Shadow Days”.
