Multiple GRAMMY® Award-winner Jason Mraz has announced the release of his latest video, “More Than Friends (Feat. Meghan Trainor).” Mraz – who wrapped his hugely successful “GOOD VIBES” summer tour this weekend with a sold-out show at Santa Barbara, CA’s Santa Barbara Bowl – will team with Trainor for a very special live performance of “More Than Friends” on tomorrow’s edition of the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show (check local listings).
“More Than Friends (Feat. Meghan Trainor)” – which has already earned over 7 million individual streams –is but one of the many highlights found on Mraz’s extraordinary new album, Know. (Atlantic Records).Mraz’s first full-length studio recording in over four years is available now at all music retailers and streaming services. Know. also includes the new songs, “Unlonely,” “Might As Well Dance,” and the current hit single, “Have It All.” The long awaited follow-up to 2014’s YES!, Know. has proven a true sensation since its release last month, debuting at #9 on the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200. Since then, the album has been streamed nearly 35 Million Times in the US alone. Mraz has also received more than 15 million monthly listeners on Spotify, placing him among the platform’s Top 100 Global Artists. In addition, songs from Know. are streaming on more than 35 combined playlists across all DSPs.
A Top 10 smash at Hot AC radio outlets nationwide, “Have It All” is joined by an official music video,currently boasting nearly 13 million views via Mraz’s official YouTube channel HERE. Directed by longtime collaborator Darren Doane (“I’m Yours,” “Make It Mine,” “Lucky”), the visual captures the song’s bright spirit with a stroll through Mraz’s hometown of Richmond, VA, joined by students from Turnaround Arts and the School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community (SPARC), as well as actors Katie Grober (Waitress) and Greg Grunberg (Alias, Heroes).
Mraz spent much of the summer celebrating Know. with a series of high profile TV performances, including a special release day set on NBC’s TODAY Show Citi Concert Series (streaming HERE). The concert appearance followed performances of “Have It All” on the nationally syndicated LIVE with Kelly and Ryan(streaming HERE) and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! (streaming HERE).
The arrival of Know. was preceded by a special one-day theatrical event presented by Fathom Events in select cinemas nationwide. JASON MRAZ: HAVE IT ALL – THE MOVIE tells the story of Know. with documentary footage directed by the aforementioned Darren Doane alongside all-new concert footage filmed earlier this summer in Los Angeles.
The documentary debuted in theaters as the #2 documentary in the country, and joined the ranks of Whitney, RBG, and Won't You Be My Neighbor as the 5th highest opening day release for a documentary film in 2018. In addition, every ticket purchased came with a free download of the album!
Having just concluded “GOOD VIBES,” Mraz will soon embark on a new fall tour. “Live In Stereo” will see Mraz partnering with longtime percussionist Toca Rivera for intimate acoustic performances beginning November 23rd at Newport News, VA’s Ferguson Center for the Arts and then continuing through late December (see attached itinerary). Support throughout comes from special guest Gregory Page. For complete details, and ticket information, please visit jasonmraz.com.
