Stream John Mayer's Upcoming Release

Earlier today, Rhapsody launched a new artist promotion supporting John Mayer's upcoming release, Battle Studies. Due to hit stores Tuesday, November 17th, fans can listen to the tracks in their entirety a week early on and VH1's "The Leak."

While I'm sure many of you have heard latest single, "Who Says" and debated the truth behind the lyrics, "Who says I can't get stoned," you'll be happy to know the rest of the album is far less questionable. Emotive "All We Ever Do Is Say Goodbye" has that acoustic folk feel reminiscent to last release, Continuum while "Half Of My Heart" is more uplifting. Featuring Taylor Swift on backing vocals, both singer's voices blend extremely well. "Crossroads," a song familiar to Eric Clapton fans, showcases Mayer's blues side well. A refreshing surprise amongst numerous ballads, it is on this track that Mayer truly shines.

What do you think? Will you be picking up a copy of Mayer's Battle Studies next week? Be sure to check out and VH1's "The Leak" for a complete album stream. Which song is your favorite?

I've listened to snipets of John's new album on his website, and I think this might be his best album yet and win him a couple more grammy's. I think Half of My Heart will be a huge hit, and I cant wait to see him again when his tour comes to town!

great album i'm really digging "assassin" right now great groove and awesome chorus melody. Perfectly lonely is a cool jam as well. I think the overall feel is just has this classic vibe about it.
