B.B. King has his Lucille, John Mayer wants his Olivia. In Mayer’s new video for the gently swaying “Something Like Olivia,” it’s never clear if he’s longing for a woman or a guitar (or perhaps both). Should Katy Perry be jealous?

The video, which doesn’t feature Mayer, focuses on a luthier as he crafts a beautiful acoustic guitar as he flashes back on a lovely woman who may or may not be the object of his affection, even though she belongs to someone else.
The track is off his unfortunately overlooked “Born & Raised” album, which came out last year. Mayer’s vocal problems didn’t allow him to promote the album properly. Luckily, he’s recovered and will hit the road again in April, including a stop at New Orleans Jazz Fest.
