Opinions by Mia
This past May, John Mayer announced that his next album “Born and Raised” is set to be released in October and THOUGH he did not specifically say October 2011, I’m pretty darn sure that’s what he meant.
Queue *excitement, excitement, excitement, excitement*!! :dance:
Recently, I’ve started to miss something. And by something. I mean. Well, John. That has been a Mia constant since FOREVER.
But what I’m talking about right now is HYPE.
John has taken a sabbatical from both social media and the media in general. And as much as I hate, hate, hate, quadruple super hate his absence, I get it. Or got it.
Now. I am not even close to being someone close to being someone close to being an expert on the subject of album promotion, but it seems like, well, we should be hearing MORE about ‘Born and Raised’ from somebody, somewhere, somehow by now.
Am I wrong? I don’t know. Maybe.
I did a meagerly five seconds of research into the subject by comparing the hype surrounding ‘Born and Raised’ to that of ‘Battle Studies’ and found that most definitely the hype surrounding ‘Battle Studies’ was greater.
John announced the November 17, 2009 release date of ‘Battle Studies’ on the 24th of August. At which time, he also declared ‘Who Says’ would be the first single.
On September 14, John sent a tweet from the set where he was shooting the video for the upcoming single. And on the 28th, ‘Who Say’s’ debuted on ‘The Scott and Todd’ show.
THEN on October 1, 2009, John sent, by tweet, the full ‘Battle Studies’ track list.
This was followed on October 6 by discussion of the augmented reality video for ‘Heartbreak Warfare.’
There are more examples,
You probably get it.
What I’m saying is…
…I want more JOHN.
