On their self-titled ninth full-length album - the first new music since 2015's The Waterfall - My Morning Jacket reaffirm the rarefied magic that has made them so beloved, embedding each song with moments of discovery, revelation, and ecstatic catharsis. It comes after a near permanent hiatus for the band until performing four shows in summer 2019 left them with a new energy. Jim James engineered/produced the 11-track collection at 64 Sound in LA where the band spent weeks in intentional seclusion.

"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."

And on lead single "Regularly Scheduled Programming" he adds, "This song really hits home for me after what we've gone through with the pandemic. But even before then, it felt like so many of us were trading real life for social media, trading our own stories for the storylines on TV, trading our consciousness for drugs. We need to help each other wake up to real love before it's too late."

Colored vinyl 2LP-set housed in gatefold packaging featuring artwork by Robert Beatty plus custom inner-sleeves with lyrics.
