“I’ve yet to be a writer that can manifest some fictional story and try to understand some character’s emotion. I always write whatever is coming up from me at the time,” Mraz said. “So for the ‘Love Is A Four Letter Word’ album process what was coming up from me was love, love, love, what is all this love? And it really didn’t have anything to do with me being a master at it. It had everything to do with me not knowing anything about it.” The album about love arrived in wake of last year’s split from then fiance Tristan Prettyman.
