It’s been nearly four years since John Mayer released his most recent full-length album, Paradise Valley. Fortunately for Mayer’s fans, the wait for new music is over April 14, when The Search for Everything — which he has teased with two “waves” so far — drops in full.
In those first two waves of new material, Mayer has released eight tracks, three of which reveal something pretty personal about the 39-year-old: He’s not totally over Katy Perry.
If titles “Still Feel Like Your Man,” “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me” and “Moving On and Getting Over” aren’t indicative enough that Mayer is feeling a sense of regret over a past relationship, he was pretty frank about the song’s subject in a new interview with The New York Times. “Who else would I be thinking about?”
Mayer was specifically talking about the track “Still Feel Like Your Man” (which features lines such as “I still keep your shampoo in my shower” and “Still think I’m never gonna find another you”) — and while the song is certainly telling about his feelings, he stressed that it’s also a testament to the fact that Perry was his only serious relationship in the last five or six years. “That was my only relationship,” he added. “So it’s like, give me this, people.”
