Listen: John Mayer Covers Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games”

    Early last month, singer/songwriter and occasional tabloid fodder John Mayer announced an indefinite hiatus from live performing, due to a granuloma– essentially a nodule– re-forming on his vocal chords shortly after a surgery he had to remove it. But Mayer isn’t completely a hermit. He took to SoundCloud recently to drop a cover of lightning rod Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games.” It’s sans vocals, done completely on a solo guitar with some cavernous reverb. And whatever you may feel about Lana or Mayer, the solo guitar rendition of “Video Games” is if nothing else, a pretty impressive bit of guitar work and worth a listen, which you can give it below.
