John Mayer has a new song, and rumour has hit he’s finally written a song about ex Taylor Swift. He has just released ‘Paper Dolls’ and the lyrics allude to a variety of Swift songs.
First, there’s ‘22’ (a Swift song) and the line “Someone’s gonna paint you another sky”, which is seen as a response to a line is Swift’s song ‘Dear John’, that says: “You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain”. Dear John was written about her breakup with Mayer.
Although no official video for ‘Paper Dolls’, there is a lyric video that features Joanna Rohrback, the face of Prancercise, to illustrate the tune. Prancercise is one of the latest crazes to sweep the US, and is described as “a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse’s gait and ideally induced by elation.” (Go figure.) Rohrback illustrates the song’s concept in the video.
Mayer’s album, Paradise Valley, his sixth will be released on Aug. 13. Check out the Paper Doll click below :
