“It turns out we’re just not all that special, when you break it down. Beautifully unspectacular, actually.”

“And you look in the mirror one day and you go ‘well, it’s not exactly what I was thinking about, but I’ll take it.”

— John Mayer

Well, that’s a wrap on release week promotion for Born and Raised. It’s so phenomenally weird to wake up this morning at home and not in the back of a bus somewhere. On the bright side, releasing this album and getting back in touch with my fans has been something I’ve been waiting to experience for a long time now. I’m finally at a place in my life where I can truly appreciate the kindness and support, and you have shown me lots of it. Thank you for that.
As I understand it, the album is set to enter the charts at number one, which is just incredible on all your parts because there has been very little I’ve been able to do to promote it. In a world of schemes and strategies when it comes to selling something, you guys just bought music you trusted you’d like. You picked it up in the same way I made it… from the heart, no trickery. That is so cool and rare and all the marketeers in the world together can’t manufacture that. I am very grateful to you. 
The making of this record was purposely undocumented, but there are a few iPhone videos and some photos to share. I figure I’ll do that here, and more often than I usually have in the past. Even if this album slides off the charts in a month, it doesn’t make it any less special to me, and we should all be digging this music together, like we would have (and will again) on stage.
Stay tuned…
with thanks and love
John

When autumn comes, it doesn’t ask. It just walks in where it left you last. And you never know when it starts, until there’s fog inside the glass around your summer heart.

I realize this is getting into stalker territory, but I thought I’d seen her before…Thoughts?

Wouldn’t it be nice to come home after a long day, kick off your shoes, faintly hear some guitar notes as you put your keys on the table, smile as you walk around the corner and see this…

Wearing aviators and a white suit jacket, couldn’t see the pants.

 Black tux pants with shiny stripe - and the jacket looked pale pink on my screen!

John on the red carpet!

Two words: PINK JACKET
