Listen to his re-interpreted version of “Dear Mr. Fantasy” below.
“It [“Dear Mr. Fantasy”] came about redoing the chords,” MASON told USATODAY.com recently of the bluesy rewrite. “I was doing some shows and I was trying to think of something to make it a little more interesting, so I just started playing around with it. I put it in a minor key instead of a major key, and I sort of developed it from there.
