John Mayer has released the cover of his forthcoming album, Born and Raised and it has Steampunk fans buzzing. Even Perez Hilton is calling it Steampunk.

Could it be that his new album and tour are going to be Steampunk as well? It would certainly be a profound departure for him, so perhaps not. Even so, it is nice to see the aesthetic appearing in new places and getting attention. Heck, even the new design for his website has a retro feel, right down to the “John C. Mayer and Company, Ltd.” globe logo in the corner.
