Exclusive Interview: Magic Influences Jason Mraz's Music

Jason Mraz: singer, songwriter ... magician? Apparently, Jason started dabbling in magic (coin tricks, to be exact) while working on his new album, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, out today. In fact, he's so into his new hobby that he took a magician on the road with him during his Music, Magic & Make Peace Tour.

But Jason's love for sleight of hand doesn't end there. He has also released three bonus EPs featuring demos, live performances and acoustic versions of songs that appear on his new full-length studio album. One of those EPs, We Steal Things, includes some "stolen" cover songs.

See what Jason had to say about the connection he feels between music and magic and why he decided that releasing one album's worth of new material just wasn't enough.
