Jennifer Lopez
Celebra, a division of Penguin Group, will release the first book by Jennifer Lopez, titled True Love, on October 28. The book will include never-before-seen photographs and will be written in the style of a personal diary. "Writing True Love has been a deeply cathartic, personal, and vulnerable experience," J. Lo said in a statement. "If it were not for the love and courage given to me by my children, this story wouldn’t have been possible. While I struggled with the decision of whether or not to release this book, I recognized that if it could touch even just one person then it would honestly become one of the most fulfilling endeavors of my life." A portion of the book’s proceeds will benefit The Lopez Family Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of women and children.

Jason Mraz has announced that his new album, Yes!, arrives on July 15. Mraz's fifth studio release sees the singer/songwriter teaming up with his longtime friends and collaborators, Raining Jane, for a purely acoustic and more intimate sound than heard on his previous releases. Yes! was produced by Mraz along with Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley) and features classical instruments, cello, sitar and vintage guitars. Meanwhile, Mraz is celebrating the album by releasing a new track every Monday. "Mraz Mondays" get underway with today's release of "Love Someone," which is available now at all digital retailers. Fans pre-ordering Yes! also will receive automatic downloads of all the "Mraz Monday" tracks as they are released.

Flyleaf has signed with Loud & Proud Records. Currently in the studio in Los Angeles with producer Don Gilmore (Pearl Jam, Linkin Park),  the group will release its fourth album in September. "Flyleaf is privileged and thankful to be joining forces with Loud & Proud," comments guitarist Sameer Bhatacharya. "There is something very special in this new Flyleaf album that resonates in our hearts. We're excited for the new release and our upcoming tours starting this fall."

Elton John will release a DVD of his Million Dollar Piano show on July 1. The Million Dollar Piano was filmed over multiple nights in 2013 at John's residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The show was filmed in high definition and will be simultaneously released on Blu-ray and DVD.

Jenny Lewis will release a new solo record, The Voyager, on July 29 via Warner Bros. "Making The Voyager got me through one of the most difficult periods of my life," Lewis said in a statement. "After Rilo Kiley broke up and a few really intense personal things happened, I completely melted down. It nearly destroyed me. I had such severe insomnia that, at one point, I didn’t sleep for five straight nights. Many of the songs on The Voyager came out of the need to occupy my mind in the moments when I just couldn't shut down." Lewis' current tour schedule runs through the beginning of August and includes a number of festival stops such as Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Austin City Limits.
