A new Jason Mraz album? To that, we say "YES!" That's actually the title, too.
Jason Mraz has announced details of his forthcoming fifth album, Yes!, which is set for release July 15. To celebrate Yes!, Mraz has just kicked off his "Mraz Monday" series, releasing a new track every Monday.
The single "Love Someone" was yesterday's reveal and the first in the series.
Check it out below.
Stay tuned for another song next week. Mr. Mraz is giving us a reason to look forward to, as opposed to the usual dreading of, Mondays!
The album finds 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.
He is switching things up a bit but we like the result so far based on this first listen to "Love Someone."
Some more info on the album? Well, it was recorded in rural Omaha, Nebraska and inland Oceanside, California, two very different locales with two different influences.
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.
Yeah, we're in! Give us more, Mraz.
