John Mayer Releases New Single 'Shadow Days'

Adele wasn’t the only singer have vocal problems!

Late last year we learned that John Mayer underwent throat surgery for granuloma, but Mayer is now back with his voice sounding as wonderful as always and he is giving fans a taste of his upcoming single, titled “Shadow Days.”

Mayer shared a snippet of his new track via his Tumblr blog. If you listen to the words, it definitely references that he is ready for a comeback! The song has a slight country feel to it, but it definitely sounds like “John Mayer style.”

His new album, Born and Raised, was initially due out in October 2011, but his throat surgery ultimately pushed the release date back. It should be out sometime this year, giving Mayer the chance to learn some lap steel, which you can definitely hear in “Shadow Days.”

John wrote on his Tumblr blog:

“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.”
