JOHN MAYER IS IN HIS FEELINGS ON DOWNRIGHT SAD NEW SONG ‘I GUESS I JUST FEEL LIKE’
John Mayer‘s tender nature is on full display on his somber new single, “I Guess I Just Feel Like.” He first performed the record in October, as a tease, at the iHeartReadio Theater in Burbank, California. Fans clamoring for the release of the tune are now finally able to get their hands (or should I say ears?) on it and it turns out that this stirring number was worth the additional four-month wait.
On his latest track, Mayer blends his silky voice with guitars for a sullen ode to shady people. He comes across as a pessimist and worrywart, spilling thoughts about the world from a negative point of view. “I guess I just feel like / Nobody’s honest, nobody’s true / Everyone’s lying to make it on through,” he sings with his bottom lip poking out. He was probably eating a gigantic tub of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia while recording. (It would be only fitting, after all.)
JOHN MAYER’S FOUR NEW SONGS ARE CLASSIC JOHN MAYER
Last year, Mayer released “New Light” and an accompanying video that screams #premiumcontent. His last studio album, The Search for Everything, came out in 2017. If you want to see him perform some of his recent material live, you’re in luck; Mayer begins a world tour in March.
