As well as being a frontman and lead electric guitar player in his own right, John Mayer is also a prolific session musician, having played with the likes of Fall Out Boy, Jay-Z and Ed Sheeran at various points throughout his career.

Now, it’s been confirmed that Mayer has been continuing his pop-leaning six-string session activities behind the scenes, and will appear on Justin Bieber’s forthcoming, as-yet-untitled album, which has almost been completed.
