On Friday John Mayer releases his new album, “Sob Rock,”  and, already, Adult Alternative audiences are loving the first single, “Last Train Home,” lifting it to # #7 on Adult Alternative formats, and #34 on Adult Contemporary.

Mayer has woven a throwback 80’s flavor into this production, a la Bruce  Hornsby and other acts of the era, but does
so with his signature smooth vocal style and musical originality–a singer/songwriter melding everything for contemporary tastes.

Even though the musical landscape constantly shifts,  a well crafted song can, if given exposure, find its audience.
