Atlantic recording artist JASON MRAZ is set for a whirlwind of activity celebrating the release of his new album “YES!.” Following his US Tour, the multi-GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter has announced he will embark on tour dates stopping in Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea, Australia, Japan, and the Philippines. All dates will feature backing from “YES!” collaborators, Raining Jane. The added dates kick off in Tokyo, Japan on November 11 at Orchard Hall and continue through December wrapping in Australia.

“YES!” marks what is perhaps the most unexpected and accomplished collection of the San Diego-based troubadour’s already extraordinary career. Highlighted by the first single, “Love Someone,” the album – which finds Mraz teaming up with his longtime friends, Raining Jane, debuted #1 on the sales charts in 46 territories around the world. “YES!” was asi #1 on the Singapore iTunes charts.
In 2014, Mraz has made a conscious choice to perform in venues smaller than the usual amphi-theatres/arenas with several multi-day residencies, including an all-borough, six-show stint in New York City, and has selected a number of historic theatres and concert halls such as London’s Royal Albert Hall, Paris’ Casino de Paris, Amsterdam’s Royal Theatre Carré, Frankfurt’s Alte Oper, and Hamburg’s Laeiszhalle. Mraz now looks forward to getting to Asia for more shows. For up-to-the-minute information, please log on to jasonmraz.com/tour.
“YES!” was preceded by the recent release of We Can Take The Long Way, a short film which premiered via USA Today and is streaming now at Mraz’s official YouTube Channel, http://youtu.be/0OfyQtaVpHA. Directed by Jeff Nicholas and Jonathan Craven and produced by The Uprising Creative (Justin Timberlake, Rihanna), We Can Take The Long Way features three songs from “YES!” including “Love Someone,” “Hello, You Beautiful Thing,” and “Long Drive.” The stand-alone companion video accompanying “Love Someone” can be viewed at http://youtu.be/J74Y6kDDTkM.
