About this item
The band’s first new music since 2015’s GRAMMY Award nominated ‘The Waterfall’, ‘My Morning Jacket’ reaffirms the rarefied magic that’s made My Morning Jacket so beloved, embedding every groove with moments of discovery, revelation and ecstatic catharsis.
Produced and engineered by James over two multi-week sessions at Los Angeles, CA’s 64 Sound, the album came to life after what looked like a permanent hiatus for the band. But after performing four shows in summer 2019 - beginning with two mind-blowing nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatre - My Morning Jacket were overcome with the urge to carry on.
That sense of purpose can be heard throughout the thrillingly expansive ‘My Morning Jacket’. For all its unbridled joy, songs like ‘Regularly Scheduled Programming’ and the otherworldly, album-closing ‘I Never Could Get Enough’ once again reveal My Morning Jacket’s hunger for exploring the most nuanced and layered existential questions in song form while simultaneously harnessing the hypnotic intensity of their legendary live show more fully than ever before.
“I hope this album brings people a lot of joy and relief, especially since we’ve all been cooped up for so long,” says James. “I know that feeling you get from driving around blasting music you love, or even lying in bed and crying to the music you love. The fact that we’re able to be a part of people’s lives in that way is so magical to us, and it feels really good that we’re still around to keep doing that.”
Barry says: A wonderfully effervescent blues-indebted number from My Morning Jacket here, swimming in the grooving melodies and shimmering psychedelic grooves they do so well. Bombastic and exciting, this is the sound of a band only getting better at what they do.
