"Paper Doll" comes a month after John Mayer announced his Don Was produced album. "New record this Summer… Not a Born and Raised “plus”… A new group of songs to bring the whole thing up to date with Summer 2013," the singer-songwriter wrote on his Tumblr. "I have that hunger that always precedes something meaningful. See you all soon. And thanks for the warm welcome back to the stage. Getting back on it a little at a time."

 Mayer will kick off his  first tour in three years on July 6 in Milwaukee, WI after performing at Philly's annual Fourth of July Jam. He'll tour till October, raising funds and awareness of the post traumatic stress effecting military veterans.
