Watch John Mayer’s Latest Music Video ‘Shadow Days’

In the past we have heard a rock/blues sound from John Mayer. However, with his latest track “Shadow Days” we are hearing the country side of the singer/musician. The mid tempo song starts off with a country sounding guitar riff and has a 70s feel to it. The track will appear on his upcoming album, Born and Raised, due out May 22nd.

In the video we see John with long hair and stubble, wearing a cowboy hat. He drifts through Arizona, Idaho, and other picturesque places, playing his guitar, visiting key landmarks, and eating at greasy diners. John seems to have left his bad boy image behind. Check out the video above and let us know what you think!


Listen To Adam Lambert’s ‘Never Close Our Eyes’

Adam Lambert shows off his high-pitched vocals once again in his latest single “Never Close Our Eyes.” The electro-bassed tune gets down and around with guitar strings and a fast pace beat.

The 30-year-old heartthrob joined forces with producer Dr. Luke and was co-wrote the tune with one of our favorites, Bruno Mars. The dance-pop ballad starts off heavenly with soft piano in the background before the synthesizer kicks in. The love-struck chorus includes: “Forget about the sunrise / Fight the sleep in your eyes / I don’t wanna miss a second with you / Let’s stay this way forever / It’s only getting better if we want it to.”

Look out for Adam Lambert’s album Tresspassing coming out May 15.
