Dead and Company formed in 2015 after the surviving members of the Grateful Dead reunited for their final Fare Thee Well shows. The new group features Mayer alongside original Grateful Dead members Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, as well as Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge and Fare Thee Well and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.
In April, Mayer released a new solo album, The Search for Everything.
