Today’s free download is “Half of My Heart” John Mayer’s duet with Country songstress, Taylor Swift and last week's winner of the American Music Award for Artist of the Year.
John performed a free concert on Monday, November 16, 2009 at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York. The live version of “Half of My Heart”, which was performed during that concert is available for download below. While Ms. Swift was not there to provide her vocals on the song during the concert, Mayer’s new background singers did a terrific job. You can listen to the studio version (featuring Ms. Swift) on John Mayer’s CD Battle Studies, available in most digital markets and at your local record stores.
There is also a version of it on his radio premiere of Battle Studies broadcast on Radio Sophie on November 9, 2009. It is in the Heavier Octaves Radio Podcast Archives at this link.
