First Listen: New Jason Mraz

Dial Down the Mraz.

While Pete is going the old fashioned route, I’ve chosen to go the digital method to pick up the new Jason Mraz record We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things. Frequent fliers of this blog will note that I’ve got a huge soft spot for the singer-songwriter and as such I had pre-ordered his latest directly from his official site opting for the total package of the three EP’s (not-so-ironically named We Sing, We Dance and We Steal) and the full length in both digital and traditional formats. The EP’s provided the sketches of what was to come and he’s delivered.Standout tracks in the first couple of listens are (obviously) “I’m Yours”, the metaphor ridden ode to the lovely ladies “Butterfly”, the lovely “Lucky (feat. Colbie Caillat)” and the painstakingly haunting beauty of “A Beautiful Mess”. This is a great example of a record with no filler and no throwaway tracks and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
