After the slickly run, professional nature which characterised their previous album, My Morning Jacket decided to turn their back on the bright lights, and returned home for a more basic recording experience this time round. Speaking to Rolling Stone, frontman Jim James explained: “This is the most live record we’ve ever done.”
While guitarist Carl Broemel added the fresh approach has elevated the new material to a level above that of its predecessors. “This record feels like a couple of steps forward of what we’d been doing in terms of overall sound,” he said.
As yet, a release date for the new record, entitled ‘Circuital‘ has yet to be released. A tracklist is also still to be unveiled, though Rolling Stone did list a selection of tracks expected to feature on the LP, which included ‘Victory Dance‘, ‘Wonderful‘, and ‘Out of My System‘.
