Jason Mraz announced plans for a major worldwide tour earlier this year, dubbed “TOUR IS A FOUR LETTER WORD.” The dates will celebrate the upcoming release of his hugely anticipated new album, “LOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD.” The global trek will get underway in early June with a series of Asian dates that includes shows in South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mainland China, and Singapore. From there, Mraz will return home for his biggest North American tour to date, kicking off August 9th at New Orleans’ Lakefront Arena. Further highlights include stops at Denver’s world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater (slated for September 24th & 25th)and Los Angeles’ one-and-only Hollywood Bowl (on October 5th). The global journey closes out in Europe with stops that include France, Germany, and the famed O2 Arena in London.
Produced by multiple GRAMMY® Award-winner Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, Christina Perri, My Morning Jacket), “LOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD” marks Mraz’s finest, most fully realized collection to date. 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.
“LOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD” is highlighted by the hit single, “I Won’t Give Up,” which is proving is yet another pop smash for Mraz, with total sales now exceeding 1 million. The track is a top 10 favorite at Hot AC radio outlets nationwide, having arrived as the format’s #1 most added track of the week upon its February impact date. In addition to its extraordinary popular success, “LOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD” has received rapturous reviews. Rolling Stone praised the album’s “blissed-out vibes” while Billboard called it “…a feel-good album that matches its emotions with some of Mraz’s most fully fleshed out and melodically ambitious compositions yet.” People declared, “…Mraz makes you his again with more breezy, folk-inflected ditties,” and USA Today stated, “The well-crafted, smartly-produced songs are reminiscent of Billy Joel’s and Stevie Wonder’s breezier work, offering whiffs of Caribbean, soul and funk-light…”
Furthermore, a very special Tangrams online game has just launched on Mraz’s official website, offering fans a weekly puzzle based upon the striking artwork featured on “LOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD.” Upon solving each week’s puzzle, fans will receive an exclusive track or acoustic video featuring songs from the new album.

One of the modern era’s most gifted pop troubadours, Jason Mraz’s extraordinary musical journey has taken him from coffee houses to stadiums all over the world, with two GRAMMY® Awards and six nominations already to his credit. His 2008 third album, “WE SING. WE DANCE. WE STEAL THINGS.” was an indelible global blockbuster, earning gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications in 21 countries around the world. The album’s lead single, “I’m Yours” was ASCAP’s 2010 “Song of the Year” and also holds the record for being the longest-running song in the history of the Billboard “Hot 100” chart. A prolific songwriter, Mraz has been feted with a number of honors, including the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s esteemed “Hal David Starlight Award,” presented to gifted songwriters who are making a significant impact in the music industry via their original songs. Mraz spent much of 2011 road-testing the songs from his as-yet-untitled new album touring alongside his longtime friend, percussionist Noel “Toca” Rivera. The worldwide trek – which included performances in North America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia – saw Mraz celebrating music’s lasting power to inspire change and help others through global citizenship. Among the journey’s many highlights were multiple sold out shows at such iconic venues as Australia’s Sydney Opera House, New York City’s Carnegie Hall, and Spreckels Theatre in Mraz’s adopted hometown of San Diego.
