My Morning Jacket Announces Release Of First New Studio Album In Six Years

As they say, good things come to those who wait. Fans of My Morning Jacket have been waiting six years for an album full of new material. And while we’ll have to wait until October 22nd for the release of their self-titled LP, they’ve released a new single called “Regularly Scheduled Programming” to tide us over.

The album will be My Morning Jacket’s first since 2015’s Grammy-nominated The Waterfall. The band had been in a holding pattern on indefinite hiatus. But, after four shows in the summer of 2019, including two big nights at the legendary Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado, MMJ pledged to carry on.

New Single Out Now

In regards to the new single “Regularly Scheduled Programming”, frontman Jim James hopes the album (and song) brings people joy and relief after being cooped up for so long.

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.

-Jim James of My Morning Jacket

My Morning Jacket will be available on all streaming platforms, including CD as well as two different vinyl versions. The 2xLP clear vinyl version will feature artwork by Robert Beatty, custom inner sleeves w/lyrics and a digital download. The 2xLP 180-Gram Deluxe Colored Vinyl version features cloudy blue and cloudy orange colored vinyl, Beatty artwork, 24×24 poster, sleeve, and download.
