|In a recent interview with the Associated Press, John Mayer speaks about his new album, Paradise Valley, the duet with Katy Perry, and his outlook on life post-throat surgery. |
In a recent interview, Mayer was as talkative as ever, but seemed to have a new sense of calmness as he discussed how his life has shifted in the last three years. He overcame a throat injury thanks to Botox injections last year, but the injury left him on voice rest for months and sidelined his performances — "an intense amount of hyperfocus" is how he describes it.
"I don't drink really anymore. I warm up before I sing. I warm down," he said. "I do whatever I can. I don't want to lose that part of my life again."
