Mason, who was fired from Groupon earlier this year, says his soft-rock album is "motivational business music." The seven songs are intended to help "executives, mid-level management, and front-line employees."
"I've probably listened to the album over a dozen times now, and with each spin I feel like I learn something," Mason said.
In his blog, Mason encourages managers to play the album for employees in contextually appropriate situations.
"Try ending your next all-hands meeting with "It's Up to Us," for example. Or, having trouble communicating with a low-per/hi-po [low-performing, high-potential] employee? A "Thinkin' of You" note attached to a flash drive preloaded with "My Door is Always Open" might be the catalyst you need for that transformational breakthrough."
The album was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Don Gehman, who has worked with John Mellencamp and R.E.M. Mason, who is reportedly worth $200 million following his Groupon exit, said the album was an independent production.
