    In what may be John Mayer’s most fashionable move yet, he’s linked up with hip hop producer extraordinaire No ID on his latest track, “New Light.”

    The number combines blue-eyed soul, funk and Japanese city pop into one ’80s-inspired package. Ideal for a summer cruise with the windows down, “New Light” is so ear-pleasingly good you’ll be putting it on repeat. Even Mayer’s guitar solo is concise and tailored for the radio. It’s almost an homage to Hall & Oates, to be frank—and that ain’t a bad thing.

    “New Light” is Mayer’s first new track since dropping The Search for Everything in 2017. Slow dance to it (in a burning room) here:
