GRAMMY AWARD-winning singer, songwriter and musician JOHN MAYER has announced the release of his forthcoming "Paradise Valley." He’s still in the studio finishing up the album, which he and longtime collaborator DON WAS are producing. As an early taste, he has released "Paper Doll" as the first single from the project. Check it out here.
MAYER will also kick off his first tour in three years on JULY 6th, which keeps him on the road until the end of OCTOBER; he will cover NORTH AMERICA, EUROPE and even some dates in SOUTH AMERICA. He will also be performing at PHILADELPHIA’s annual FOURTH OF JULY JAM.
MAYER will use the U.S. portion of the tour to both raise funds for and heighten awareness of the effects of post-traumatic stress on our military veterans. One dollar from each tour ticket sold in the U.S. will go to the NORTHERN CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH AND EDUCATION. MAYER partnered with NCIRE two years ago to create programs that help veterans return to healthy and productive civilian lives.
In fact, last year, MAYER was honored in WASHINGTON, D.C. by the RECORDING ACADEMY for his philanthropic work on behalf of both U.S. military veterans and young people interested in music.
