Jason Mraz Teams With Female Folk Group For New Acoustic Album
"Sonically, my backing band on this album are four incredible women," he told Radio.com of working with Raining Jane. "Their approach to music and their voices definitely bring a tenderness and sentiment to this record that some of my records don't have."
"The themes on the album are very much the same themes I've written about: optimism, hope, love, joy, healing, faith, acceptance, gratitude," he explained. "This is a conscious decision because I always feel a song should be an affirmation of some kind. It should get you through the present moment and into a more loving or realized future."
Fittingly, his lead single is called "Love Someone" and was written with the ladies of Raining Jane while walking down a dirt road in Virginia with a small herd of goats.
"We all grabbed an instrument and we're walking down the road just making things up," Mraz said. "That's really what songwriting is. It's taking risks and making things up and seeing what sticks. It was an observation of how wonderful love is. When you give it away it comes back to you immediately. It really is what gives us life." more on this story
