My Morning Jacket
Release Date: TBA
My Morning Jacket's follow-up to 2015's The Waterfall was interrupted by frontman Jim James's second solo album, Eternally Even. The Waterfall sessions produced 24 tracks, enough for two albums, but James has promised that more new material will be recorded for its successor. MMJ released "Magic Bullet" as a violence-awareness statement last July, and "The First Time" ended up on Cameron Crowe's canceled Showtime series Roadies. But as with any MMJ project, what ends up coming through your speakers may have no connection to what the musicians planned before entering the studio. "As I know from past records," James told Rolling Stone, "you'll walk in with these rock & roll songs, and you'll walk out with a record of the saddest, dreamiest ballads."
