Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Jason Mraz has announced details of his much-anticipated new album. YES! will be released via Atlantic Records on 14 July.
You can listen to the lead single “Love Someone” which is out on 30 June below. Additionally, Jason will be releasing live video performances, “Live from the Om Studio at Mraz Organics’ Avocado Ranch,” directly on his Facebook page to accompany tracks that will be unveiled every Monday.
Jason Mraz’s fifth studio release, YES! sees the San Diego-based troubadour teaming up with his longtime friends and collaborators, Raining Jane, for a purely acoustic and more intimate sound than heard on his previous releases. YES! was produced by Mraz along with Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit, Rilo Kiley), was recorded in rural Omaha, Nebraska and inland Oceanside, California. While somewhat intimate and esoteric, YES! still remains a Mraz-like pop album and features classical instruments, cello, sitar and vintage guitars and sings about universal themes of love, faith, healing, environmental stewardship and inner peace.
Jason will be announcing his YES! world tour dates in June. The tour will kick off the U.S. in August with Europe planned for September, Asia and Australia later in 2014 and South America in 2015.
