NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Atlantic recording artist Jason Mraz has announced early details of his upcoming international tour -- a unique itinerary that will see the multi-GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter performing in an array of intimate venues around the world. The dates celebrate Mraz's new album, "YES!," which arrives everywhere on July 15th.

The "YES!" tour -- which finds Mraz teaming up with his longtime friends and "YES!" collaborators, Raining Jane -- gets underway this August with a series of intimate North American shows and surprise multi-show runs in select cities. Complete information will be unveiled soon. Mraz will then head to Europe, where he is set to appear in such historic theatres and concert halls as London'sRoyal Albert Hall, Paris' Casino de Paris, and Amsterdam's Royal Theatre CarrÉ (see below itinerary). Asian and Australian tours are scheduled for later this year, with South America slated for 2015. For up-to-the-minute news and information, please log on to jasonmraz.com/tour.

"YES" marks what is perhaps the most unexpected and accomplished collection of the San Diego-based troubadour's already extraordinary career. Mraz is heralding "YES!" by releasing a new track every Monday through the album's eagerly awaited arrival. Highlights include the set's first single, "Love Someone," which is available now at all DSPs. Fans pre-ordering "YES!" will receive automatic instant grat downloads of all the "Mraz Monday" tracks as they are released. For more details, please visit Mraz's official web store, located at jasonmraz.com/store/us.

Furthermore, Mraz is complimenting each "Mraz Monday" track with an exclusive acoustic performance clip, "Live @ Mraz Organics' Avocado Ranch." Released weekly via Mraz's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/JasonMraz), the live clips can also be viewed at Mraz's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/OfficialJasonMraz. Official audio of "Love Someone" is now streaming at www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5LsjYPPgEk; a companion video clip is currently in post-production, with a premiere date to be announced soon.

In addition, Mraz and Raining Jane -- who only recently traveled the West Coast together on a sold-out concert tour -- will perform on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" on Thursday, July 17th followed by a live set on NBC's TODAY with a "Toyota Concert Series" show broadcast from New York's Rockefeller Center on Friday, July 18th. The appearances follows Mraz's recent performance of "Love Someone" on the live season finale of Fox's American Idol.

One of the world's hardest working and most beloved artists, Jason Mraz's journey has propelled him from the San Diego coffee house scene to arena, amphitheatres, and stadiums all over the world. A two-time GRAMMY® Award winner and six-time nominee, Mraz made pop history with his record-breaking classic single, "I'm Yours," while also earning platinum and multi-platinum certifications in more than 20 countries. Moreover, the San Diego-based troubadour has proven a truly diverse creative presence. A dedicated surfer, farmer/gardener, filmmaker, and photographer, Mraz is first and foremost a committed global citizen. His impassioned social activism and philanthropic efforts span wide-ranging environmental advocacy and ardent support for LGBT equality. Though it all, Jason Mraz continually confirms and celebrates music's myriad forms and miraculous power, inspiring and delighting his countless fans around the world he calls home.
