My Morning Jacket have announced their own four-night festival, One Big Holiday, set to take place next January 26th-30th at the soon-to-re-open Hard Rock Hotel at the Riviera Maya in Mexico.

The festival will feature three unique concerts by My Morning Jacket, as well as one massive dance party, along with a smattering of daytime activities like yoga classes, tequila tastings and off-site trips. And the best part: all drinks are included.

My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James – who's currently touring behind his solo LP Regions of Light and Sound of God – recently told Rolling Stone that the band is looking to get back in the studio this October and start working on the follow-up to 2011's Circuital. "We always try to do something a little different each time and we did that last time," James said. "We have a couple top-of-the-heap places we're in the process of deciding what will work best."

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
