Legendary american musician John Mayer reveals he's coming back to the studio to write his next studio album, Rolling Stone reports.
"John is recording his 6th studio album," says the Mayer's official Facebook page announcement. "Check back every Tuesday for more Studio Session videos to see what's going on behind the scenes."
The first video shows Mayer toying with an amp, looking over his collection of pedals and picking out a spacey, washed-out lick. Check it out below.
"I'm up to four or five songs I think are really cool," adds Mayer himself. "There's a song called 'Badge and Gun' that's pure country. I'd like to do a country EP at some point, a smallish record."
He continued: "I like a lot of stuff I didn't think I was going to like 10 years ago. That excites me."
Mayer's 2013 comeback kicked off in January when he performed live for the first time in two years after undergoing two rounds of surgery to repair a granuloma in his throat. Mayer is now set for a sprawling summer tour that kicks off July 6th in Milwaukee.
The latest Mayer's studio album, "Born and Raised," was released on May 22, 2012.
