Track is first single from forthcoming album
My Morning Jacket has shared the first single from its self-titled ninth studio album. “Love Love Love” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services with an official music video directed by George Mays with animation by Mero premiering on YouTube. My Morning Jacket, its first new album in six years, arrives via ATO Records at all DSPs and in various physical formats on Friday, October 22nd.
“‘Love Love Love’ is trying to steer the ship away from everything I’m talking about in ‘Regularly Scheduled Programming,’ and speak toward positivity and pure love, finding truth within yourself and in the world around you,” says My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James.
The band’s first new music since 2015’s GRAMMY Award-nominated The Waterfall, the self-titled project 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 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 “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.
My Morning Jacket will be available on CD as well as two vinyl configurations: 2 LP clear vinyl featuring a gatefold jacket with artwork by Robert Beatty, custom inner-sleeves with lyrics, and digital download; and 2 LP 180-gram deluxe colored vinyl featuring cloudy blue and cloudy orange colored vinyl, deluxe foil gatefold jacket with artwork by Robert Beatty, 24” x 24” circular fold-out poster, custom inner-sleeves with lyrics, and digital download.
