Jason Mraz Premieres Ultimate Feel-Good Song “Have It All”: Listen
Jason Mraz premiered last Friday a brand new single entitled "Have It All".
This feel-good acoustic tune that you just have to listen to with a big smile on your face at all times is said to be first single from Jason's forthcoming sixth studio album.
"Have It All" was written by Mraz with David Hodges (Christina Perri, Kelly Clarkson) and JKash (Maroon 5, Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor) in collaboration with his friends in Raining Jane, and produced by Andrew Wells.
What inspired this song?
Here: The track was originally conceived after Mraz received and translated a blessing from a Buddhist monk during a moving visit to Myanmar in 2012. However, current events compelled him to bring “Have It All” fully to life at last.
And here's what Jason Mraz had to say:
“The world had changed a lot since 2012. 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. ‘Have It All’ stood out as a song with a hopeful message to help me heal and move forward; a song with a message of generosity - the antithesis of despondency; a song bestowed to me by translating a message from a monk. It’s a blessing disguised as a rap song and it’s meant to be paid-forward and shared.”
My obsession with this song is REAL.

Directed by longtime collaborator Darren Doane (“I’m Yours,” “Make It Mine,” “Lucky”), the visual captures the song’s bright spirit with a stroll through Mraz’s hometown of Richmond, VA, joined by students from the School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community (SPARC), as well as students from the Richmond area Turnaround Arts schools, plus actors Katie Grober (Waitress) and Greg Grunberg (Alias, Heroes).
