John Mayer’s new album Paradise Valley is available to stream in its entirety exclusively on iTunes beginning today (iTunes.com/JohnMayer). The album will be available to stream until its release on August 20. The Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician produced Paradise Valley with longtime collaborator Don Was, who also co-produced Mayer’s #1 charting Gold-certified 2012 release Born and Raised, and has worked on albums for acts such as the Rolling Stones, B.B. King and Bonnie Raitt. Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will instantly receive a download of the track “Wildfire” (iTunes.com/JohnMayer).
John Mayer will also preview songs from Paradise Valley, along with fan favorites, the day before the album’s release for a “Live on Letterman” webcast concert on August 19. Mayer fans have the chance to win tickets to the webcast performance using the John Mayer Tour App, now available on all mobile platforms and through Citi’s Private Pass® program (www.citiprivatepass.com). The webcast will be streamed live at http://www.cbs.com/late_night/liveonletterman and also will be available on demand on CBS.com and VEVO. He will also perform his latest single “Wildfire” on the broadcast of the Late Show with David Letterman that evening.
Mayer kicked off his first tour in three years last month, which marks his return after the recurrence of a throat granuloma forced him to cancel his tour in support of Born and Raised and take an indefinite hiatus from performing. The 40-stop U.S tour continues through early October, with support act Phillip Phillips (“Home,” “Gone, Gone, Gone”) for most U.S. shows. Mayer was also announced on the lineup for the Global Poverty Project benefit concert in Central Park on September 28.
Mayer is using the U.S. portion of the tour to heighten awareness of and raise funds for our military veterans suffering from the effects of post traumatic stress. One dollar from each tour ticket sold will fund PTS-related programs created by Mayer and the Northern California Institute for Research and Education.
