My Morning Jacket have revealed plans to release their sixth album, ‘Circuital’, on June 6.
Recorded in the gymnasium of a church in Louisville, the ten track album is the band’s first full length release since 2008’s ‘Evil Urges’.
“I hate the phrase ‘going back to our roots’, but for this record we came home and made it in Kentucky,” explains frontman Jim James. “And it just felt a lot like it did when we were first starting out.”
James co-produced the record with Tucker Martine.
The pair first worked together when James appeared on Laura Veirs‘ album ‘July Flame’ last year, which Martine – Veirs’ husband – also produced.
My Morning Jacket will play London’s Somerset House on July 16 and Latitude Festival in Southwold on July 17.
