My Morning Jacket Sets Album Release Date

My Morning Jacket will release its highly anticipated new album Sept. 20 via ATO/RCA.

The album will feature “10 or 11” songs, although “a couple others are teetering,” drummer Patrick Hallahan says. Three tracks have been unveiled on audiences during recent live shows: “Don Dante,” “What a Wonderful Man” and “Off the Record.”

Hallahan credits the studio debuts of new members Carl Broemel (guitar) and Bo Koster (keyboards), as well as recording outside the group’s usual Kentucky/Indiana homebase, with pushing MMJ in new directions.

“There are a lot of new elements involved,” he says. “You can’t help but have made some changes. It definitely has some cool sounds on it, but it’s a different monster than [2003’s ‘It Still Moves’].” That album debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and has sold more than 127,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
