Paradise Valley, the latest album from Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician John Mayer, will be released on August 20, and is available now to pre-order on iTunes.

Mayer produced Paradise Valley with longtime collaborator Don Was, who also co-produced Mayer’s #1 charting Gold-certified 2012 release Born and Raised, and has worked on albums for acts such as the Rolling Stones, B.B. King and Bonnie Raitt.

“Paper Doll,” the first single from Paradise Valley, is available now on iTunes, and the lyric video already has more than 3 million views. People gave the “bittersweet beauty” 3 1/2 stars and Billboard called it “a perfectly crafted pop song,” remarking that “Mayer’s voice has triumphantly returned.” Mayer performed “Paper Doll,” as well as previous hits “Waiting On The World To Change” and “Queen of California,” on the Today Show on July 5.

Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will instantly receive a download of the track “Wildfire.” A lyric video for “Wildfire,” featuring footage of Mayer performing live, was posted today and can be viewed here:

Mayer kicked off his first tour in three years in Milwaukee on July 6. Rolling Stone reviewed the tour opener, saying that “Saturday’s show may be remembered for its heavy dose of new material and Mayer’s vocal rejuvenation. But in the moment it felt most special because [Mayer] looked thrilled to be back.” The 40-stop U.S tour continues through early October, with support act Phillip Phillips (“Home,” “Gone, Gone, Gone”) for most U.S. shows. Mayer was also just announced on the lineup for the Global Poverty Project benefit concert in Central Park on September 28.

For the European leg of the tour, singer/songwriter Gabrielle Aplin will be the support act for Mayer in each of the eight sold-out arena shows in Denmark, Holland, Norway and the United Kingdom. Aplin’s debut album English Rain shot to the top of the UK album chart when it was released in May 2013, and spawned the hit single “Panic Cord.” Her follow-up single “Home” is due to be released this month.
