Who can forget Jason Mraz’s Geek in the Pink and Wordplay? His up coming album, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things is scheduled for release on May 20. The video above is video of “I’m Yours,” one of his new singles from his upcoming album.
In the interview with NewNowNext he talked about his kooky video blog, his collabo with Colbie Caillat and his love for his many gay friends.
Here’s an excerpt:
Why the decision to release three EPs? (WE SING came out March 18th; WE DANCE came out April 15th; and WE STEAL THINGS will be available as part of the iTunes album bundle.)
It’s been so long since I’ve put anything out; I spent the last year-and-a- half just work-shopping the sounds in coffee shops and everything. And I promised a lot of people I was going to make an acoustic project next – and when I came home from London, I had my funkiest album yet. And I thought, OK, I guess an acoustic album would be next.
Then I came up with the idea of the three EPs, and that gave me the opportunity to release the album songs in a stripped-down, raw format … And I just thought it would be fun – to reintroduce ourselves to the world. ‘Cause I hear so much from the fans, We just like it when it’s just you – just you and Toca. And I do too; I love that. Because I spent a lot of my year as an acoustic duo and a funky band; I divided it up equally. It’s a sort of way to divide up this album, to have an acoustic version and a dance-able version.

Named after the first (and last) note on the music scale, The Dø is the quirky French-Finnish duo of Olivia B.Merilahti (vocals) and Dan Levy (guitar, synths). They explain that they are on a clear mission to crank out a sound that fills the void in popular music in their biography. “[Our music] spans the space between the rock and the roll, with wholesomeness & simplicity that excite like electricity,” the band says.
Dominated by Olivia’s idiosyncratic vocals, their music has an off the wall quality that is very refreshing. Listen to and watch video of the group’s European hit single “On My Shoulder” above.

Not long after he came out from the closet, Michael Stipe is declaring something on his band mates’ behalf. My immediate reaction: “LOL”

This may not come as a surprise, but Michael Stipe, the lead vocal of R.E.M. is indeed gay. He talked to Spin Magazine about his coming out story.
“It was super complicated for me in the ’80s. I was totally open with the band and my family and my friends and certainly the people I was sleeping with. I thought it was pretty obvious. Now I recognize that to have public figures be very open about their sexuality helps some kid somewhere out there.”
Yeah, who’d knew?
