In NovemberMraz posted on his MySpace page plans for a new album to be recorded starting in December, writing, "In 2 weeks time I will enter the studio and begin recording the next album.
Only a handful of songs are written and slated but the momentum of love is with me. Every day new verses get added on. The songs are coming together piece by piece. The process is unlike any of the other records before this. It's like I'm being gifted the album without having to do the work. I'm creating that in 6 months the project will be complete and then we'll hit the road again with new sounds and new musicians.
