After three postponements, Jason Mraz is finally bringing his \u201cLook For the Good Live\u201d tour to Connecticut with a stop at Mohegan Sun Arena on Aug. 22. With a new album and a catalog of fan favorites in tow, Mraz said he is ready to inject positivity back into the world post COVID-19 pandemic.\u00a0 \u201cWe just survived a pandemic and we\u2019re ready to get out of our houses and celebrate again and reimagine the world,\u201d he said in a phone interview. \u201cI think having music in the background as we reimagine our lives is a really powerful thing.\u201d When it comes to performing in the Nutmeg State, Mraz said returning to Mohegan Sun in this first tour since the pandemic is approaching a milestone for him. \u201cThe first time I played there was 2002 \u2014 we\u2019re getting very close to that 20-year mark,\u201d he said. \u201cI was opening for Jewel in the fall of 2002 at Mohegan Sun\u2026since then, I\u2019ve been in and out [of Connecticut] for many years. Even just a few years ago, I was in Hartford.\u201d His appropriately-titled new album \u201cLook for the Good\u201d reflects on the \u201cchallenging year\u201d of 2020 and seeks to deliver an uplifting "remedy" through his platform as a singer-songwriter. Drawing on the influences of traditional reggae, rocksteady and ska that are rooted revolution and change, his \u201cLook for the Good\u201d album offers his take on the sound in a way that stays true to his signature style. Mraz came onto the scene in the early 2000s with his his single "The Remedy," and has had a number of radio favorites since then like "I'm Yours" and "I Won't Give Up."

And when fans head out to see him perform the song at the Uncasville arena, Mraz said they will be getting a new take on the track.\u00a0 \u201cWe actually took the reggae out of it and it\u2019s more of a sentimental, smooth R&B tune,\u201d he said. \u201cI love it, and audiences seem to be loving it too. You see people kind of snuggle up with the one they\u2019re with, and they\u2019re celebrating the song in a new way.\u201d The title track on "Look for the Good" encourages listeners to \u201clook for the good in everyone,\u201d while \u201cYou Do You\u201d featuring comedian Tiffany Haddish proclaims, \u201cThere\u2019s only one of me \/ Incredibly \/ Uniquely designed.\u201d Both draw in the familiar offbeat and clipped chords of the genre. \u201cOn our record, we wanted to make sure we went back in time and paid homage to the roots reggae and the rocksteady and the ska that got us to where we are today in reggae,\u201d he said. \u201cMy record is more like your parents\u2019 reggae \u2014 it\u2019s a little bit old-timey reggae but with a modern twist in our production style.\u201d Mraz said providing empowering music is something of a personal MO. \u201cIf you\u2019re going to add more music to your catalog and your listening playlist, I wanted it to be empowering music ... something that cheered you on to get through another day on this planet,\u201d he said. \u201cMy music will always in some way reflect the times, but if anything it\u2019s just because the mere fact that we\u2019re human.\u201d While he said he wishes he could play every song on his latest album when he stops in Connecticut, Mraz said he plans on performing \u201ca little over half\u201d of the record, while also making sure to hit his fan favorites. Taking the Mohegan Sun stage 19 years and a pandemic later, Mraz said hitting the road in still uncertain times is both exciting and gratifying simply for the \u201cmere doing it.\u201d \u201cThose who are coming to the shows seem to be arriving with gratitude and excitement, or they\u2019re just fearless or they don\u2019t give a damn,\u201d he said. \u201cThey\u2019re putting live music or entertainment as a priority, or they\u2019re putting their loved ones as a priority and saying, \u2018I\u2019m going to take you out on a date tonight.\u2019 Whatever it is, the mere \u2018doing\u2019 is very exciting because of this holding pattern we\u2019ve all been in\u2026and that gets translated through our performance on stage and the audience dancing with us.\u201d Tickets for Mraz's\u00a0stop at Mohegan\u00a0Sun are available starting at $40.
