Back after a gap of 3 years, John Mayer recently dropped his new single titled Love on the Weekend and as expected, the track has been playing regularly on my playlist. I’ve listened to his last two albums careful and when I compared Love on the Weekend to them, I found drastic shift. With Battle Studies, John seemed to be at his lowest, media reports and some of John’s interviews, would have proved this point right. It was kinda the same with Paradise City, except for the fact that the album sounded it was Mayer’s recovery to Love on the Weekend. Born and Raised, Queen of California, and Something about Olivia are all songs that literally relate to healing and getting back up.
Love on the Weekend is part of a new ensemble album that Mayer will be releasing soon. Judging from what’s been written in the press and by what John’s been saying in the media, it does seem that this album smacks of positivity. The song takes John to the days of Your Body is a Wonderland where we see this breakthrough musician talking about love and all the positive things that go with it. The lyrics of the takes you to a happy place and speaks about how he’s craving to meet his “love” whether this love is music, or in my case food, it’s all about looking forward to the weekend. The tune of the song is quite similar to Your Body is a Wonderland in John’s distinct peppy pop meets classic rock music. Have you ever heard the song? Do you have any thought about it?
