[photogallerylink id=125425 align=left]What would it sound like if John Mayer wrote an album of cowboy songs on this guitar under the stars? You can find out this week. John was in town last night for an album listening party, joining a few XRT listeners for an in-person preview of his forthcoming album, Born & Raised.
If you weren’t one of the lucky few selected to share a couch with John, we have the next best thing — preview the new album here, in full. Mayer said the LP will have “organic cowboy guitar sounds — more organic, more natural lyrics and chords and artful simplicity.”
Stream the album below and let us know what you think.
