Grammy Winner Jason Mraz on New Album ‘YES!’ + His Positive Outlook


musicandentertainment_logo

That’s my only objective when I’m making an album is I have to love it and it has to be beautiful.” –Jason Mraz

Mr. A-Z, meet Mr. King. Fresh off the release of his fifth studio album “Yes!” Jason Mraz sat down with Larry King on his Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now” to counters critics who accuse him of being too positive and explains why his heart will always be in coffee shops. Plus, Jason on his double life as an avocado farmer.

The Grammy winner addressed his critics, and whether he’s as happy as his music would suggest. When I hear people accuse me of being positive, they accuse me in a way that says ‘Well, it can’t be real. You can’t really be that positive all the time.’ And they’re correct, I’m not positive all the time. But I’ve used art and songwriting as an opportunity to transform my sadness, my depression, my melancholy into something more positive, through positive articulation and through writing these mantras set to music.” 

His fifth studio album ‘Yes!” was just released and Jason exclaimed, “This is my best work yet!” The album is a collection of more mellow tunes than his previous work. Fun fact: Mraz was surprised that “I’m Yours” became a chart-topping hit, “Maybe this is a kid’s song. Maybe I’ll save this for a kid’s album.”
