Jason Mraz has always been one to bring the good vibes, but even he'll admit that the current events of recent years have had him feeling down.
“The world had changed a lot since 2012,” Mraz says in a statement. “More people are marching for their freedoms and equality; to be seen and heard. Activism is back in style. I wrote a lot of frustrated, angry, even sad songs between then and now, but nothing I wanted to come forward with; nothing I wanted to sing."
Instead of moving forward with the not-so-happy tunes he had penned, the 40-year-old singer reflected on a trip to Myanmar in 2012, where he had a moving visit with a Buddhist monk. Mraz received a blessing from the monk that resulted in a song called "Have It All," which he was inspired to bring to light amid the world's tough times.
