John Mayer: “New Light” (2018)

How this soft, silky slice of faux-80’s soul-inflected disco pop missed the Hot 100 is a mystery to me–like the appeal of so many artists who do inhabit the upper reaches of said singles chart.

The video is a hoot too. In an Instagram post Mayer joked:  “I needed to make a video for ‘New Light’ but nobody could agree on a budget, so I went to a place downtown and made this with a company that usually does birthday and Bar Mitzvah videos.”

Yup, that’s pretty much what it looks like.
