    4. Press the "Go to website" button on the "Details" page and answer the question - Jason Mraz's new single Have It All was inspired by a blessing. What is the blessing? (Hint: It is the first line he sings in the song).

    5. Include your name, e-mail, contact number and address in the form provided.

In an earlier interview with The Straits Times, the Grammy-winning singer said the song was inspired by a blessing he received from a monk while he was travelling in Myanmar.

And like his previous hits, which include The Remedy (I Won't Worry) (2002), I'm Yours (2008) and I Won't Give Up (2012), the rest of the songs in Know. are also all about love and positivity.

These include Better With You, inspired by his 2015 marriage to former coffee-shop owner Christina Carano, as well as More Than Friends, a duet featuring fellow American pop singer Meghan Trainor.

"I love happy, hippy songs," the singer, known for his philanthropic efforts through The Jason Mraz Foundation, said during the interview.
