In September, John Mayer cancelled upcoming concerts after being diagnosed with an enlarged nodule just above his vocal chord.  After 2 weeks of vocal rest and other therapies the situation didn’t improve, resulting in him having to undergo surgery on October 23rd to remove the granuloma.

John posted via his Tumblr account  Sunday night about recovering:

[I am] now on complete vocal rest for a month or moreI should be frustrated but I can’t seem to stop thinking about beautiful things… I never thought I’d be wishing I could do what I love again; I stay in at night, picking guitar parts off of records and dreaming of playing on the big stage. The only difference between now and when I was 18 is that now I have this beautiful, meaningful record waiting for me when I can sing it.

John has been working on his next album “Born and Raised” which now looks to be released sometime in 2012, as opposed to this year as planned.

While on vocal rest, John plans to travel across the country:

Going to travel the country, look and listen.

Speaking of looking and listening..  how about a John Mayer video?
