My Morning Jacket's Carl Broemel to release solo album

Guitarist announces plans for folksy album due in August

My Morning Jacket's Carl Broemel to release solo album
My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel will release a new solo album, 'All Birds Say', on August 31.

The album's first single, 'Heaven Knows', has already appeared online.

"I think there's a lot of trying to be aware of what you're doing now versus dwelling on things or worrying about what's gonna happen later," said multi-instrumentalist Broemel. "A lot of the songs are really just me talking to myself, trying to make sense of things in my head."

Broemel's father, a former member of the Indianapolis Symphony, also features on the album playing baritone sax, clarinet, and bassoon.

"To me, making records is like alchemy. It's something that no-one can ever perfect, but you have an insatiable desire to keep doing it and get better at it," said Broemel Jr of the new album. "I really believe that everything we experience contributes to what we do next, so this album is really a result of all the records and tours I've done so far."

Currently My Morning Jacket are performing at several summer festivals and will soon open for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers before embarking on their own headlining tour, which will include five nights in New York this October.
