American singer-songwriter John Mayer’s extended play (EP), The Search for Everything: Wave One, was made available on January 20, 2017, through Columbia Records.
Despite never being made available as a single from the album “You’re Gonna Live Forever In Me,” which was first made public in 2017 as a part of Mayer’s seventh studio album “The Search For Everything,” is currently one of the artist’s most streamed songs on Spotify. It has received over 145 million plays as of this writing.
John Mayer made his departure from Columbia Records, where he had spent 21 years, official in January of this year. With the label, he released eight studio albums, including the ironically titled “Sob Rock” last year. His studio albums include 2001s “Room For Squares,” 2003s “Heavier Things,” “2006s Continuum,” 2009s “Battle Studies,” 2012s “Born And Raised,” 2013s “Paradise Valley,” and “The Search For Everything” (2017).

The Search for Everything, his eighth album, was loosely centered on the subject of a breakup. In July 2021, Mayer released Sob Rock, a new album influenced by the soft rock from the 1980s.
The lead single, “Last Train Home,” and a music video were available on June 4. On July 16, 2021, the album and “Shot In The Dark” music video were made public. The previously released singles “I Guess I Just Feel Like,” “New Light,” and “Carry Me Away” were all on the tracklist. The production of “Carry Me Away” was somewhat changed to reflect the 1980s feel of the album.
Will Lavin of NME gave Mayer’s most recent album a four-star rating and applauded his ability to make fun of himself in a satirical song.
John Mayer also pursues side careers in television presenting, comedy, and writing; he has written essays for publications including Esquire. He has performed at charity events and supports several organizations. He contributes to the watch website Hodinkee, is on the jury for the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, and is a watch enthusiast with a collection he values in the “tens of millions” of dollars.
