My Morning Jacket begin work on album six

Jim James and co. are already writing their next effort

Despite releasing their fifth album, ‘Evil Urges’, last month, My Morning Jacket have already begun work on its follow-up.

Speaking to BBC 6music, frontman Jim James said that he was in the process of writing what will be the band’s sixth studio album.

“I’m already writing songs for the new record and stuff,” he said. “The process is weird because whenever we make a record, the songs come from one or two years of life that you’ve lived.

“Then by the time you get to make that record you’re in that zone but when it comes out, it’s a year or two later. So, for me personally, I’m working on the next thing.”
