Atlantic recording artist Jason Mraz has announced details of his hugely anticipated new album, including by popular demand, a new release date.“LOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD” – which includes the heartfelt hit single, “I Won’t Give Up” – will now arrive in stores and at all digital retailers on April 16th.
Produced by multiple GRAMMY® Award-winner Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, Christina Perri, Young The Giant), “LOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD” marks Mraz’s finest, most fully realized collection to date (see attached tracklisting).Fueled by magnificently textured arrangements and distinctive vocal landscapes, the album – Mraz’s fourth studio release and first new collection since 2008’s epochal “WE SING. WE DANCE. WE STEAL THINGS.” – fully confirms the San Diego-based singer/songwriter as one of modern pop’s most vibrant and inventive artists.
“It’s personal.It’s melodic.And it’s mellow,” Mraz recently told Billboard. “There’s a couple of up-tempo tunes, but mostly the rhythm-of-the-heartbeat kind of takes precedence on this record.It feels more like the pace of life.At least, based on my life and what I’ve been doing.”
With sales now approaching 500,000, “I Won’t Give Up” also quickly ascended to #1 on iTunes’ “Top Songs” and “Top Pop Songs” charts.In addition to its success here in the US, “I Won’t Give Up” has also topped digital retailer charts around the world.
The “I Won’t Give Up” companion video – directed by acclaimed filmmaker Mark Pellington (Bruce Springsteen, U2, Pearl Jam) – will have its eagerly awaited online premiere this Thursday, February 16th via Media24.co.za.Unveiled with little fanfare via a lyric video on Mraz’s official www.jasonmraz.com, “I Won’t Give Up” earned immediate love and praise from an array of famous names, including Ellen DeGeneres, Colbie Callait, Rob Thomas, Perez Hilton, and Lady Antebellum, all of whom took to their Twitter feeds to tweet about the track.The lyric video has since received nearly 8 million individual views at Mraz’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdN5GyTl8K0.
