Jason Mraz Says "YES!"; Multi-GRAMMY(R) Winner Announces New Album; First Single, "Love Someone," Available Today, With New Tracks to Be Released Every "Mraz Monday" Through the Album's Long Awaited Release; Major TV Performances Get Underway With America

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- Atlantic recording artist Jason Mraz has announced details of his much-anticipated new album. "YES!" arrives everywhere on July 15th.

The multi-GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter is celebrating "YES!" by releasing a new track every Monday through the album's eagerly awaited arrival. "Mraz Mondays" get underway with today's release of, "Love Someone," which is available now at all DSPs. Listen to the song here: http://youtu.be/a5LsjYPPgEk. Fans pre-ordering "YES!" will receive automatic downloads of all the "Mraz Monday" tracks as they are released. For more details, please visit Mraz's official website jasonmraz.com.

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 (see track listing below). "YES!," 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.

Mraz is currently set for a number of high profile TV appearances, beginning with a performance of "Love Someone" on the upcoming live season finale of Fox's American Idol, slated for Wednesday, May 21st (check local listings). Mraz and Raining Jane will then hit The Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform another new song "Hello, You Beautiful Thing" on Friday May 23rd followed by a visit to NBC's The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, July 17th and NBC's TODAY with a "Toyota Concert Series" show broadcast live from New York's Rockefeller Center on Friday, July 18th.

In other news, Jason will be announcing his "YES!" tour dates in June. The "YES!" tour will get underway in the U.S. in August with Europe planned for September, Asia and Australia later in 2014 and South America in 2015.

One of the world's hardest working and most beloved artists, Jason Mraz's journey has propelled him from the San Diego coffee house scene to arenas, amphitheaters, and stadiums all over the world. A two-time GRAMMY® Award winner and six-time nominee, Mraz made pop history with his record-breaking classic single, "I'm Yours," while also earning platinum and multi-platinum certifications in more than 20 countries. Moreover, Jason has proven a truly diverse creative presence. A dedicated surfer, farmer, photographer and songwriter, Mraz is first and foremost a committed global citizen. His impassioned social activism and philanthropic efforts span wide-ranging environmental advocacy and ardent support for LGBT equality. Though it all, Jason Mraz continually confirms and celebrates music's myriad forms and miraculous power, inspiring and delighting his countless fans around the world he calls home.

Jeremy didn’t have a job there, or even a job offer. He was s...
