''The Village Sessions'' is an EP released by blues-rock artist John Mayer on December 12, 2006. Collaborators include John Mayer Trio members Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino, along with Ben Harper, Robbie McIntosh, and Ricky Peterson of Mayer's touring band and former producer for Prince albums. The six-song EP contains acoustic and alternate versions of songs found on Mayer's third studio album, ''Continuum'', and his trio's live album, ''Try!''. Mayer co-produced the album with engineer Chad Franscoviak.
Though the EP was released at about the same time as Mayer’s single, "Gravity," the song itself does not appear on this EP, much like Mayer's singles "Daughters" and "Bigger Than My Body" were not on his live album, ''As/Is'', despite being the current singles at the time of its release. Like the ''As/Is'' series before it, ''The Village Sessions'' was made available on iTunes, on May 15, 2007. - Wikipedia
JOHN MAYER just can't sit still - he recently re-recorded his most recent single, "Waiting on the World to Change," with Ben Harper, and then dropped by the Village Recorder in LA with Robbie McIntosh (The Pretenders, recent band member of JM's band) and recorded four additional acoustic tracks in one day - a must-have for any John Mayer fan!
