This ninja is a beast on the guitar. “Edge Of Desire” was recorded in one take just recently — as liberated on his blog. I’m curious to see what else he cooks up with these acoustic sessions.

I’ve been thinking of a way to say thank you for making Battle Studies such a huge success out of the gate… I’ve also been thinking of a way to use tumblr as a means of posting some more substantial stuff… So here’s a very raw, live solo version of “Edge of Desire” I just recorded in my apartment as a way to show my gratitude to you all for extending my time in this amazing career you’ve helped me build.

I think if you were kind enough to spent the 13 bucks, you should get some free music for the next good while.

So here it is. A song about late night longing recorded at 3am. iPhone dinging in the background and all…(that’s how I knew the take was going to be worth sticking with, as the best takes always get interrupted.)

Thank you.

More to come…

-John Mayer

Truth be told, Battle Studies is a pretty good album. I overplayed the shit out of Continuum though so I might be a little biased towards that record as opposed to the new one.

The official video for John Mayer’s first single from the upcoming Battle Studies album scheduled for release November 17th. Continuum was an official classic, so I expect nothing but the greatest guitar solo’s on this next effort. Video was directed by Anthony Mandler.
