    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 (www.MyMorningJacket.com) 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

    About Jason Ashcraft

    Jason is a life-long Louisville native who grew up in the Highlands, and now resides in an undisclosed fortified location somewhere in Louisville. He's followed Louisville's rock music scene for almost 10 years, first as a concert promoter, then an artist manager, and now a music critic and reviewer. He's one crazy Jarhead who'll literally publish anything his mind conceives on impulse, so don't always expect him to follow the traditional laws of journalism. He has intent of reviving Hunter S. Thompson's “gonzo journalism” if only his editors will allow it...which they don't usually. Head over to LouisvilleScuttlebutt.com for more published rhetoric.
