STREAM/PURCHASE MY MORNING JACKET
MY MORNING JACKET is the band’s 9th studio album and 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 mul-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 was 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 the album-opening song “Regularly Scheduled Programming” and the otherworldly, 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.
MY MORNING JACKET was initially heralded by “Regularly Scheduled Programming,” as well as its first single, “Love Love Love.” Official music videos are streaming now on YouTube. Last month, the band performed “Regularly Scheduled Programming” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Last week, they released “Complex,” one of the most frenec offerings on the album, bringing a shred-heavy urgency to James’s self-reflection.
