Mayer is projected to sell around 150,000 copies of the album by August 25. "Paradise Valley" marks his sixth time in the Top 10. Last year's "Born and Raised" debuted with 219,000 at No. 1, and "Battle Studies" opened at the top of the pile in 2009 with 286,000 copies sold. "Where the Light Is: John Mayer Live in Los Angeles" hit No. 5 in 2008.
The Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician produced "Paradise Valley" with longtime collaborator Don Was, who also co-produced Mayer's No. 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.
Mayer kicked off his first tour in three years last month, which marks his return after the recurrence of a throat granuloma forced him to cancel his tour in support of "Born and Raised" and take an indefinite hiatus from performing. 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 announced on the lineup for the Global Poverty Project benefit concert in Central Park on September 28.
