Dope, this is exactly the type of song I have been waiting on from Mayer. Instead of falling back into his comfort zone in the old school R&B sounds he expands his inspirations and fast forwards to the 80’s on “No Strings” and still kills it. The funky, prominent bassline, synths and whatever that loop is in the background (xylophone maybe?) all give it a classic feel while Mayer croons about wanting a no strings attached relationship (because he is a normal dude lol). Mayer teamed up with Mazda for this track to further prove that corporate sponsorship is a viable option to supplement lagging album sales. Check below the break for the download and his upcoming tour dates which include DC, Toronto and NYC (which is what we call the B&B trifecta over here for all our writer’s current locations) all in October.
