Atlantic recording artist Jason Mraz has disclosed early details of his enormously anticipated new album, "WE SING. WE DANCE. WE STEAL THINGS." The collection-- Mraz's first set of all-new material in nearly three years -- will arrive in stores and at online retailers on May 20th. The San Diego-based troubadour's third studio release, "WE SING. WE DANCE. WE STEAL THINGS." was produced by Martin Terefe, known for his work with KT Tunstall, Ron Sexsmith, and James Morrison. The album sees Mraz continuingto tread his own distinctive artistic path, melding a variegated musical tapestry with passionate, personal lyricism. Among the highlights are collaborations with British tunesmith James Morrison and singer/songwriter Colbie Caillat. "I'm Yours," the album's first single, was chosen due to the undeniable fan response to the song. A demo version of "I'm Yours" originally appeared on a limited release bonus EP Mraz put out with his last album. Today the song is an online sensation, with over 300 user-generated videos from more than 25 different countries now appearing on YouTube.

Always an active online presence, Mraz has kept his loyal fanbase abreast of his recent activities via a series of video blogs, dubbed "Crazy Man's Ju-Ju." The Ps will feature unique versionsof various album tracks recorded during special intimate sessions.

A compelling and inventive live performer, Jason will celebrate the new album with a coast-to-coast North American concert tour, slated to kick off sometime this spring. Full details will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, Mraz will perform Feb. 28 at iTunes Live: London Sessions in the UK.
