John Mayer seeks redemption and a fresh look on his slick new single, "New Light." The track premiered on May 10, 2018, on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show.
Mayer produced "New Light" with hip-hop stalwart No I.D., crafting a steady groove reminiscent of Eighties blue-eyed soul and tinged with disco guitars. Mayer's lyrics are both cheeky and earnest as he croons lines like, "Pushing 40 in the friend zone/We talk and then you walk away, every day," then pleads during the chorus, "But if you give me just one night/You're gonna see me in a new light."
"New Light" marks Mayer's first solo offering since the release of his 2017 album, The Search for Everything.
