New Life For Jim James

Image

For his upcoming solo album, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James drew inspiration from a 1929 woodcut novel by Lynd Ward, God’s Man. The first single, A New Life, finds James’ voice at ease and in pristine form amidst warm, sauntering strums.  Before you think the lot of new material will be fit for a traipse through the wood-covered hills, let it be known that these tracks are promised to burst wide open with funky nasty R&B grooves and a smidge of hip hop flavor giving unexpected delights as the album moves onward. Prepare to get your freak on?  We’ll have to wait and see.

Regions of Light and Sound of God (ATO Records) will be available February 5.
