Geek In The Pink
The first single to be taken from Mr. A-Z, the exuberant 'Geek In The Pink', will be released on March 6, 2006. To mark the release of Mr. A-Z, Jason Mraz is set to return to the UK for live dates in February, both as the main support on James Blunt's massive sold-out arena tour, kicking off in Glasgow on February 10, and also to play a clutch of his own headline shows, including Shepherd's Bush Empire on February 21.
Jason Mraz is set to release his pseudo-self titled new album Mr. A-Z on February 6, 2006 through Atlantic Records. Produced by the legendary Steve Lillywhite (U2, the Rolling Stones, Talking Heads et al) at Allaire Studios near Woodstock, NY, Mr. A-Z is the inspired follow-up to Mraz's acclaimed 2003 debut record Waiting For My Rocket To Come which has to date sold over a million copies worldwide.
Says Jason of his new album; "Mr. A-Z is 365 days of Mraz in just under an hour. The album took exactly a year to make, from the day the first word was scripted in January 2004 to mastering in January 2005, giving the whole affair a true four-season feel. These twelve songs recognize the events of my last few years, in which I left the coffee houses where I was raised and was thrust into the theatre and arena circuit with the success of 'Remedy'. I'm pretty sure this album will please audiences from both my caffeinated roots as well as those from my recently discovered Red Bull-and-beer-chugging jam band scene."
