John Mayer is here to be honest!

On Friday, the singer dropped a new track, his first single since 2018’s “New Light.” Mayer originally debuted the guitar-led track at a show back in October 2018.

“I spent August and September of last year looking for new songs and couldn’t find them,” Mayer wrote in an Instagram post, sharing more insight into the songwriting process. “Then one day in October I decided I’d had just about enough of myself, and that’s always when the good stuff starts. I got two inexpensive microphones, a 1” tape machine and took out my Martin D-45 guitar. ‘I’m just going to do what I do,’ I remember thinking. And then it all clicked again. I wrote most of ‘I Guess I Just Feel Like’ in an hour.”

Mayer, whose last album The Search For Everything was released in 2017, is touring most of this spring/summer, joining Dead and Company on the road from May 31st through July, then kicking off his own solo run of shows, wrapping things up in California on September 14.
