John Mayer’s first single since 2013 has dropped (not counting XO in 2014) and it’s like that country period that included his two previous studio albums never happened. Not that I dislike that period in any way at all of course, but this new single takes Mayer back to his brilliant pop music best. Take a listen:
Blur – The Magic Whip
I’ll start with my favourite album of the year by a country mile, The Magic Whip by Blur. Coming out of the blue 12 years after their previous album it was one hell of a surprise to say the least, but it was well worth the wait. I’m a huge Blur fan and I’d been waiting so long for a new album from them, especially after Graham Coxon rejoined the band in 2009 and the three new songs released since 2010. And this year, 2015, we finally got it.
