••›  As previously revealed, the four songs released off The Search for Everything are “Moving On and Getting Over,” “Changing,” “Love on the Weekend,” and “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me.” (“Love on the Weekend” was previously released as a single last year.)
••›  Mayer’s last studio album was 2013’s Paradise Valley, but he has kept busy by both working on the new music and touring as the lead guitarist with Dead & Company (which features Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann). Mayer helped the group celebrate 50 years of the Grateful Dead in 2015 and 2016.
••›  Last year, when announcing the release of “Love on the Weekend,” Mayer said of what became The Search for Everything, “There are more songs than can fit on your standard sized album. But I do think next year is the year of more music coming than I’ve ever put out in one year.”
iTunes Review
••›  On the surface, John Mayer already has everything: guitar~god status, an honorary membership with the Grateful Dead, a trove of GRAMMY®s and Rolexes. But everything feels like nothing when you don’t have someone to share it with, especially when you’re nearing 40 and humbled by heartbreak. This album is about his quest for forgiveness, companionship, family, and meaning — the real everything. In classic Mayer fashion, it’s deeply sentimental and a little existential. On “In the Blood,” he ponders his fate with his heart on his sleeve: “How much of my mother has my mother left in me? How much of my love will be insane to some degree? And what about this feeling that I’m never good enough? Will it wash out in the water or is it always in the blood?”
AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas ErlewineScore: ****½
••›  John Mayer first teased his seventh album, The Search for Everything, through a pair of EPs that contained eight of the record’s 12 songs. It was a sly way for the singer/songwriter to ease back into his soulful side, a sound he largely abandoned during an extended dalliance with Laurel Canyon country~rock ~ an infatuation that culminated in his position as a substitute Jerry Garcia in the Grateful Dead satellite group Dead & Company. Although it’s ostensibly a breakup album, The Search for Everything doesn’t feel haunted: Mayer glides through the record so smoothly, the supple sound seems almost insouciant. It is also quite alluring. Mayer may be reverting to the sound of Continuum, alternating between R&B workouts and soul~baring ballads, but forward movement is the unifying sentiment here. The nimble funk opener, “Moving on and Getting Over,” makes that plain, as does the plaintive “Changing,” which summarizes his plight simply: “I may be old and I may be young/But I am not done changing.” Some of Mayer’s change can be charted in how he hangs onto his romantic past, burying some of his heartache on the deceptively exuberant opener, “Still Feel Like Your Man,” and offering a bittersweet denouement in the admission “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me.” Mirroring his emotional maturity is a sharpening of his songcraft. While he’s always shown a knack for slow~burning soul, the progression and arrangement of the smoldering “Rosie” feel as sophisticated as the lithe grace of “Emoji of a Wave,” while “Roll It on Home,” an easy~rolling country~rocker that tips its hat to the Dead, shows how he absorbed the lessons of his Laurel Canyon detour of Born and Raised and Paradise Valley. Those two records, along with such earlier workouts as Try! John Mayer Trio Live in Concert, reveal the extent of Mayer’s ambition, but The Search for Everything succeeds because he’s not donning a new costume: instead, he’s settling into a groove he can claim as his own, and it feels like he’s at home.
