John Mayer has released a 60-second clip of his new single "Shadow Days," off his upcoming album Born And Raised.
The singer premiered the clip on his official Tumblr yesterday along with the message, "Been looking forward to a post like this since October 14, 2010, the first day I started writing this group of songs... Enjoy."
At the end of 2011, Mayer suffered from the throat condition granuloma, which caused him to cancel concert appearances and postpone work on Born And Raised.
"This is a temporary setback, though I'm not sure how long or short a period of time it will be," Mayer wrote on his Tumblr. "I've got the best doctors in the country looking after me and I will be singing and touring again as soon as I get the all clear."
The song sounds like typical Mayer, with a soothing vocal track over the familiar blend of guitar and drums that his fans have come to love over the course of his career. "It sucks to be honest / And it hurts to be real / But it's nice to make some love that I can finally feel," Mayer croons on the song.
Born And Raised , set to be released sometime this year, will be Mayer's first album since 2009's Battle Studies.
