John Mayer Parts With Columbia Records

John Mayer is leaving Columbia Records after more than two decades with the label.

He wrote on Instagram Friday (March 4th), “After 21 years, eight studio albums, and some wonderful personal and creative relationships, I have decided not to renew my recording agreement with Columbia Records. Hard as it is to say goodbye, I’m excited to pursue new avenues of making music, both of sic my own and with other artists.”

The “Last Train Home” singer added, “I love music more than ever, and I believe some of my best work still lies ahead.”

During his time with the label, Mayer released Room For Squares (2001), Heavier Things (2003), Continuum (2006), Battle Studies (2009), Born And Raised (2012), Paradise Valley (2013), The Search For Everything (2017), and last year’s Sob Rock.
