World Cafe Live interview, Non-Comm, Philadelphia, May 18, 2012

Non-Comm Day 2
An interesting part of the day was World Cafe host, David Dye’s interview with John Mayer. Yup. John Mayer was in the house. They spoke a lot about his new album Born and Raised but his inability to tour it due to vocal issues. He spoke a lot about his writing style and where his lyrics come from, including his parents divorce and finding his own home. Born and Raised is all about growing up and not being discouraged about the past or future. “I get up quickly even after getting hit with an anvil.” The most interesting part of the discussion although was John requesting a “5-minute song break” and walked off the interview because he was “feeling something and just had to go with it.” Lucky enough though, he returned.

John Mayer Proud Of ‘Giant Evolutionary Steps’ On Born And Raised

At intimate New York listening party, singer says new album ‘widened the expectations of what I can do.’

NEW YORK — Fans and industry folks gathered at the famed Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village on Wednesday night to get an advanced listen to John Mayer's new album, the country-fried, introspective Born and Raised.

Before the album even played, Neil Young songs blasted through the hallowed halls of the studio. Given Mayer’s vibe on Born and Raised,which pays homage to the Young sound of the 1970s, it all made sense. When Mayer’s album was eventually put on, it was an easy transition from Young’s jangly guitar and harmonica to Mayer’s own on the album, out Tuesday.

The album was recorded at Electric Lady Studios, and the Big Apple is referenced on some tracks, as on many Mayer songs before. “Records are pure reflections,” Mayer told the room. “I’m so proud it’s out. The finish line is so far off [when you’re making the record].”

In recent years, Mayer has been through it all. After going TMI crazy in the press in 2010, he has shied away from media attention. Some of that had to do with the fact that he had surgery on his vocal cords in late 2011. In fact, he still needs to go through another surgery to correct the problem. But he said he plans to record a new album this summer, regardless.

"If you’re lucky, you get to make giant evolutionary steps from your first record, so I was able to do that. And you guys, I think, you’re able to come along with that step and be psyched about that evolution and I’m excited to even go further now and start coming up with melodies you haven’t heard yet," he said, referencing his "Your Body Is a Wonderland" days on his 2001 debut, Room for Squares. During the chat he explained that every song on this album is his favorite, for perhaps the first time in his career, adding that they “widened the expectations of what I can do.”

Additionally, after having to cancel his 2012 spring trek, Mayer confirmed he want to hit the road in spring 2013 “and have two records to pull from. … I think I can cheat time a little bit because as you know, I try to cheat time all the time. So I think we can all catch up so that a year from now there’s two records. It’ll be like Born and Raised part two because there’s certain things I want to keep doing.”

New video from The Ellen DeGeneres Show

John Mayer: ‘I can’t sing, so I’m writing’
John Mayer, sporting long hair and a big hat, chats with Ellen DeGeneres on her show today, explaining why he took a break for the last two years.
"I just sort of lost my head for a little while," he says. "I did some kind of dumb interviews and that woke me up."
Was he referring to his 2010 Playboy interview (in which he used the n-word)?
Replies Mayer, “Oh yeah, I don’t even remember having a Rolling Stone cover. It was a very strange time and it sort of rocketed me into adulthood. It was a violent crash into being an adult. For a couple of years it was just figuring it all out and I’m glad I actually stayed out of the spotlight. Because I think back then I would of said, give me two weeks or like let me get out and do Ellen and let me explain myself. It was like, ‘No, idiot.’ Go away be 33 and 34 instead of 28 for the fourth year.”
He moved to Montana, which is where he’s living now as he continues to recover from vocal surgery.
"I can’t sing, so I’m writing," he tells Ellen, explaining, "It’s a thing in my throat. It’s not a health concern whatsoever, but it has taken me out of singing. Tried to beat it the first time and couldn’t. What they actually do is they cut this thing out of your throat and then they inject your vocal cords with Botox which freezes your vocal cords so that this thing can heal without smacking up against the other side. I just need more Botox next time. So I got to do it all over again get more Botox which kind of paralyzes for vocal cord for longer. I’m very happy to be a writer, really lucky to be a writer."
