My Morning Jacket’s new album and their upcoming concert in Kentucky [Music]


Louisville’s My Morning Jacket is set to release their sixth studio album, “Circuital” on April 12th. In the meantime, to celebrate the new release, My Morning Jacket will giveaway free weekly downloads via their website ( of live songs recorded from their October 2010 performance at NYC’s Terminal 5. This giveaway is said to last for six weeks and will feature one brand new song from the new album on the last week.

The first song released on March 3rd was a live recording of Butch Casidy off their debut album “The Tennessee Fire.”
"Circuital" was recorded here in Louisville and Nashville, and was co-produced by Jim James and Tucker Martine (R.E.M., Sufjan Stevens, The Decemberists). Rumor has it that they have yet again reinvented their sound while remaining close to their roots as musicians.

MMJ will also be launching a busy summer concert season on April 17th at Memorial Coliseum in Lexington, KY. Maybe a Louisville gig is also still in store because I can’t imagine them not debuting their new album again here in Louisville as they always do.

But, what is known right now is here: 

April 17
Lexington, KY - Memorial Coliseum

May 20-22 Gulf Shores, AL - Hangout Festival

June 02-05 Ozark, AR - Wakarusa Festival

June 02-05 Hunter, NY - Mountain Jam

June 09-12 Manchester, TN - Bonnaroo Festival

June 30 - July 03 Quincy, CA - High Sierra Music Festival

Here is a video from Jim James and Patrick Hallahan's solo performance of One Big Holiday in December 2010 at Headliners.
