After being absence from the spotlight for a while, John Mayer is back with a new music video. A mildly country vibe is heard on this track called "Queen of California".
The video opens with the singer looking straight at camera and strumming his guitar while sitting on his bed. He then walks out the door and wanders around. He braves the rain and steps into a forest. He steps out of tree-filled splendor and winds up backstage at a fashion show and on the set of a photo shoot. He pays no attention to the models and keeps walking.
He grabs a guitar and jams with his band for a bit but this doesn't last very long. He soon walks off again, crossing through a snowy park before beginning the cycle once more in his bedroom which is now decorated with roses. He walks out again to the street and is met by a parade. His long stroll continues until he once again grabs a guitar and rocks out to his song.
A five-song EP called "The Complete Mr. J.C. Mayer 2012 Performances Collection" from the talented guitarist is expected to drop on August 7 for an exclusive iTunes release.
He is still trying to recover from a vocal injury that has forced him to take an indefinite hiatus from live performances. According to the singer's Tumblr blog, he is going in for surgery at the end of August. He adds, "but I'm excited to get back to it next year."
