Besides last month's One Big Holiday destination event, all has been quiet on the My Morning Jacket
front in 2014 thus far. According to a new interview
with Jim James it won't stay that way for long as the band is currently working on a
new studio album.
When asked about the status of the new album, which the band is currently recording, James
tells The Kentucky Project, "It’s going great. We are going to some cool new
and just enjoying playing music together as a band. We hope maybe it will come out in the
fall." We were hoping MMJ would preview songs from the album at One Big Holiday, but
instead the band chose to dust off old originals and covers. James had a great time down
in Mexico, "It was a lot of fun! I think more fun than anyone expected. The place was so
beautiful. It was just a chance to relax and have fun. Even though we worked our asses off
re-learning songs for it! We were so excited that so many people wanted to come share in
the event [‘s] magic with us!"
Jim James discusses much more in the new interview including MMJ's participation in tribute albums
and environmental issues.
