John Mayer Discusses Born and Raised Release Week

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (05/26/12)
John Mayer wrote a blog discussing Born and Raised's release week. You can read the blog below.
BlogWell, thatís a wrap on release week promotion for Born and Raised. Itís so phenomenally weird to wake up this morning at home and not in the back of a bus somewhere. On the bright side, releasing this album and getting back in touch with my fans has been something Iíve been waiting to experience for a long time now. Iím finally at a place in my life where I can truly appreciate the kindness and support, and you have shown me lots of it. Thank you for that.

As I understand it, the album is set to enter the charts at number one, which is just incredible on all your parts because there has been very little Iíve been able to do to promote it. In a world of schemes and strategies when it comes to selling something, you guys just bought music you trusted youíd like. You picked it up in the same way I made itÖ from the heart, no trickery. That is so cool and rare and all the marketeers in the world together canít manufacture that. I am very grateful to you.

The making of this record was purposely undocumented, but there are a few iPhone videos and some photos to share. I figure Iíll do that here, and more often than I usually have in the past. Even if this album slides off the charts in a month, it doesnít make it any less special to me, and we should all be digging this music together, like we would have (and will again) on stage.

It's expected to do 225-250k based on one day sales.

This album shows how much he's grown up and matured and he's all the better for it.

Fantastic release, can't wait til he's well enough to tour it.

Seriously. Ridiculously consistent, with five albums that are completely different from one another. Not to mention that Trio record.
