Rocket Revisited – on vinyl & video

November 17, 2017

A few months ago I tweeted that I needed a VCR ASAP – and fans delivered. (Thank you, Marissa!) The result was an archeological dig through past performances and personal VHS tapes from a pre-digital era to revisit the good old daze of recording my first album, Waiting For My Rocket To Come, 15 years ago, touring in a van, meeting lifelong fans, and becoming who I am.

Today I’m excited to share that Waiting For My Rocket To Come is out now on vinyl! With never before seen pics by Alison Dyer, expanded art by the great Robert Fisher, and new liner notes written by yours truly. Buy it at your preferred retailer here.

In 2002 I gave studio engineer Peter Harding a video camera to capture some footage for my dad and my grandma. That recording session ended up changing both of our lives, as WFMRTC became an international hit and Peter went on to become a badass filmmaker. Peter and I revisit that era and discuss the album genesis with some never-before-seen footage in a short new series we call Rocket Revisited. Watch Part 1 here:

October marks the 15th anniversary of my first studio album Waiting For My Rocket To Come. Last month I mentioned that we’ll soon be releasing the album for the first time ever on vinyl… and today I’m happy to announce that WFMRTC will be out on vinyl this November 17 – and you can pre-order it now!

The album will be released as a double LP featuring three sides of music and an exclusive fourth-side etching. I teamed up with Robert Fisher, who designed the original artwork, to create a new album layout that includes never before seen photos by Alison Dyer, official lyrics, and 15th anniversary-edition liner notes.

Head over to the Jason Mraz Online Store to pre-order the vinyl today (plus a brand new tee designed by Robert Fisher). Or check out our exclusive orange vinyl edition of the album at Barnes & Noble!

More Rocket revisiting to come over the next few weeks. Be sure to check back for the latest updates (including International vinyl release dates).

No Stopping Us,
Jason

The First Announcement

September 11, 2017

Howdy Friends! And welcome to this first of many exciting upcoming announcements.

Join me and my guitar in San Diego on Saturday, October 14 for a weird and perhaps wild night of music, comedic candor, and banter. Aptly titled Music. Candor. Banter. Tickets are on sale this Friday at 10am PT on Ticketmaster.com.

This show – taking place at Spreckels Theatre, where we filmed parts of “The Remedy” music video – marks the 15th anniversary of my album Waiting For My Rocket To Come, which will SOON be released (for the first time ever) on fabulous vinyl! Plus be on the lookout for more content to come as we revisit Rocket over the upcoming weeks.

More to come. Stay tuned.

Still Yours,

Jason

There Is No Away – OrganicSound

June 16, 2017

There is no away.

When I buy something – I’m responsible for where it ends up.

The same is true when I make something.

When we throw something away – there is no away.

In the world of tour merchandise it’s normal to make more t-shirts than what we actually sell. When that happens I am left with obsolete inventory. I’ve done my best to repurpose this inventory into new things like aprons, bags, pillows, and blankets. But now thanks to a collaboration with OrganicSound, I can continue my commitment to sustainability and a Zero Waste philosophy but turning my obsolete tees into new clothes!

As a participant of the textile industry, I am responsible for the agricultural & environmental impact that it causes. OrganicSound allows me to shred the old tees back into source fiber, which is rewoven with organic cotton to create new yarn, which becomes new tees. I’ve seen the process with my own eyes. It’s ingenious, innovative, and about time.

The first examples of our new-recycled shirts are on now available at the merch table. Be sure to check em out!
