The wait for new John Mayer music is almost over.

After months of teasing new music, the singer announced Tuesday that his new album, “Sob Rock,” will be released on July 16.

But fans won’t have to wait that long, as Wall Street Journal reported that the first single, “Last Train Home,” will drop on Friday, June 4.

Mayer, who has not released a new album since 2017’s “The Search For Everything,” has teased new music for months via TikTok.

“My album is recorded, mixed and mastered,” the “Your Body Is a Wonderland” singer wrote in a March 20 TikTok post that garnered 1.2 million views. “I’ve been just chilling and sharing it with friends for the past couple of months.”

On March 22, Mayer dropped snippets of a new song in a pair of TikTok videos, one of which showed the singer playing with dogs and another in the middle of a photoshoot.

Mayer, 43, teased another new song in a March 25 TikTok, where a snippet played over him using text to describe his favorite aquarium sizes.

In a recent Instagram Story, Mayer said he was taking extra time to perfect the album.

“I assure you it’ll all fire up very soon,” he said. “I’ll put it like this: every day you have to go without my new music is another day I can work harder to make sure it gets heard by as many people as might enjoy it.”

Then, late Monday evening, he posted a picture to his Instagram of a faux magazine cover with the simple caption “Friday” teasing his new music.

“John Mayer shares details……and music!” the magazine cover reads with Mayer, 43, clutching a pink and white PRS Silver Sky guitar.

The cover also includes the quote “Did I say April? I meant June,” making light of his comments earlier in the year that a new album was coming in April.

Mayer is poised for a big year in 2021. Not only is he teasing a new album and preparing for a tour with Dead & Company, but he is also reportedly in talks for his own talk show on Paramount+.
