John Mayer is about to take time off – unwillingly. The other day he made it clear in his blog on Tumblr that his vocal chords need treatment – the 33-year-old suffers from granuloma, there is an inflamed nodule in his throat affecting his singing ability.
Mayer wrote that he had hoped to control the condition undergoing continuous monitoring, but eventually doctors deemed it best he cancel all upcoming concerts, the most spectacular of which are a performance at the iheartradio Music Festival in Las Vegas and an L.A. duet show with Tony Bennett.
His misfortune will also affect the release of his new album, Born and Raised, that was scheduled to come out before the year is through. Now, awaiting his recovery, the album won’t be ready until some time next year.
It is known that the condition is temporary, but just how long it will linger remains uncertain. The Grammy winner assures his fans he is being looked after by “the best doctors in the country” and promises to go on the road again as soon as his ordeal is over. “Until then I’ll be spending time writing and composing more music and kicking an empty soup can around the West Village,” the singer joked.
