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 here. Additionally, Jason has been 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. Watch the first video for "Love Someone" here.
Furthermore, following huge success at London's O2 Arena back in 2012, Mraz has announced details of a string of UK live performances set to take place in September. The run of shows will give Jason the opportunity to play a more intimate gig for fans and at such iconic theatre venues in not only the UK but also around the world. The dates will kick off at London's Royal Albert Hall on 26 September followed by the Corn Exchange in Cambridge and rounding off at The Lowry in Salford.
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.
