John Mayer makes the Search for Everything Wave One sound way more poetic than it probably feels, and per usual, it's right on time. The four song EP is the first set of songs from the new album, and it follows the transition from quarter-life crisis to the next step in adulthood: your 30s. Mayer makes life's challenges feel so romantic with lyrics that paint the beautiful balance of heartache, letting go and finding what you've been searching for all along. The soulful collection feels honest and heartfelt, a throwback to the days of Contiuum or even Battle Studies.
(And let's face it- the guitar solo in "Changing" requires you to close your eyes and get lost.)
"You're gonna live forever in me. I guarantee- it's your destiny."
Please excuse us while we play this on repeat. All day/weekend/month.
