The fourth studio album, Battle Studies from the seven-time Grammy winner, John Mayer, is set to be released on November 17th. This album, which Mayer also produced, will be his first release in three years. Battle Studies was recorded in a private home in California where Mayer lived and worked over the course of six months before wrapping at the famed Capitol Studios in Los Angeles.
In addition to the new album release on November 17th, the singer will also perform songs from the new CD that night at New York City’s Beacon Theatre. Tickets for this event are only available to past members of Local 83, Mayer’s fan club, as a thank you for years of dedication. For those people who are not fan club members, you can catch the show on the Fuse Network, which will have a live broadcast of the show at 9 PM Eastern, 8 PM Central. Be sure to check fuse.tv/JohnMayer for live backstage footage leading up to the broadcast.
