Single of the Day: John Mayer - New Light

Oleh: rendy-tsu - 04 Jun 2018 | Views: 68

Sejak merilis The Search for Everything di tahun 2017, kita belum mendengar satupun karya baru dari John Mayer. Finally, he’s back with a new single. Kali ini, John Mayer memproduksi single barunya bersama produser terkenal, No. ID yang lebih banyak bekerja sama dengan musisi hiphop sekaliber JAY-Z atau Kanye West.

Lagu yang CreativeDisc pilih sebagai Single of The Day kali ini berjudul "New Light", balada platonis yang berkisah tentang perjalanan Mayer dalam mengejar seorang wanita yang tidak tertarik, atau kalau kata John Mayer yang percaya diri, belum menyadari perasaannya. Sounds familiar? Ya, ‘New Light’ menyajikan cerita klasik yang sering disampaikan John Mayer; patah hati, friendzone, perasaan terpendam, mencintai dari jauh.

'New Light' memiliki nuansa blue eyed soul dan disco 80s yang kental, dengan drum soundnya Jimmy Buffett sebagai penyokong. Ini kabar baik bagi para fans yang telah menantikan karya terbaru John Mayer. Setidaknya membuat para fans dapat bernafas lega jika idolanya itu berubah ‘gila’ lagi, seperti saat ia merilis album folk, seperti Born & Raised (2012) atau Paradise Valley (2013). Sebelumnya ia juga memposting foto dan artwork yang digunakan untuk mempromosikan single (dan semoga album) di Instagram. Dalam foto itu, John Mayer duduk bersama gitar sambil mengenakan jaket nenek-nenek berwarna ungu biru, dengan menuliskan caption “Summer bop drop imminent”. Baik musik dan artworknya menunjukkan bahwa John Mayer kali ini benar-benar terinspirasi era 80an.

Liriknya nakal dan memiliki humor yang menyenangkan khas John Mayer. "Pushing 40 in the friendzone / We talk and then you walk away, everyday", kata musisi yang tahun ini genap berumur 40 tahun itu. Lalu memohon “but if you give me just one night / You’re gonna see me in a new light”. Ya, meski sudah berumur 40 tahun, John Mayer tetaplah John Mayer.

Lyrics:

[Intro]

Ah, ah, ah

Ah...

[Verse 1]

I'm the boy in your other phone

Lighting up inside your drawer at home all alone

Pushing 40 in the friend zone

We talk and then you walk away every day

Oh, you don't think twice 'bout me

And maybe you're right to doubt me, but

[Chorus]

But if you give me just one night

You're gonna see me in a new light

Yeah, if you give me just one night

To meet you underneath the moonlight

Oh, I want a take two, I want to breakthrough

I wanna know the real thing about you

So I can see you in a new light

[Verse 2]

Take a ride up to Malibu

I just wanna stay to look at you, look at you

What would it matter if your friends knew?

Who cares what other people say, anyway

Oh, we can go far from the end

And make a new world together babe

[Chorus]

'Cause if you give me just one night

You're gonna see me in a new light

Yeah, if you give me just one night

To meet you underneath the moonlight

Oh, I want a take two, I want to breakthrough

I wanna know the real thing about you

So I can see you in a new light

[Bridge]

Ay, ay

Ay, ay

Ay, ay

Ay, ay

Ay, ay

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...

[Chorus]

Yeah, if you give me just one night

You're gonna see me in a new light

Yeah, if you give me just one night

To meet you underneath the moonlight

[Outro]

What do I do with all this?

What do I do with all this love that's running through my veins for you

What do I do with all this?

What do I do with all this love that's running through my veins for you

What do I do with all this?

What do I do with all this love that's running through my veins for you

What do I do with all this?

What do I do with all this...
