Mraz announced the signing on his new launched weekly livestream, La La La Livestream.
“I’m making music that feels new to me and therefore sought to find a label partner that would work in new ways to support my new dreams,” said Mraz. “I already love what this new partnership with BMG is doing and the new direction we are going. Together, we plan to bring positive vibes to these extraordinary times.”
