"With any trilogy, the third in the series blows it open." says John Mayer. On his new album, Continuum, the singer/songwriter/guitar slinger meets that challenge head-on!
John Mayer's third studio album, Continuum, follows the multi-platinum Room For Squares (2001) and Heavier Things and marks his first turn as producer. It is his most soulful, cohesive collection yet and he says it's no accident that this project is where all of his efforts, his potential, and his disparate influences fully come together.
"I wrote 'Gravity' last summer, and it changed everything," he says. "You talk less when you trust that people understand you. 'Gravity' had to be sparse. And when I listened to it - for the first time, holding back - then it was a whole new game. That might be the most important song I ever wrote."
Continuum represents maturity, both musically and thematically, for John Mayer - a concept that he wasn't comfortable with until now. "My generation was never told we were going to get older. We thought we were going to hear our names on 'Romper Room' for the rest of our lives. For a long time, I was really upset about getting older, worried that things were just going to level out."
"But then I realized that everyone around me was all getting older at the same time. We're all fighting it together, and we're always going to be those kids, the first really emotionally aware generation. When I realized that, I could relax about it a little bit. And I thought that maybe I can be the guy to sing about it."
