MMJ: Circuital and New Download Series

We’ve got all sorts of good news from My Morning Jacket as Rolling Stone’s Brian Hiatt shared details about the band’s new album and the group launched a download series to get fans ready for the release of the LP.

Hiatt’s article takes us inside the process that led to Circuital. The band’s sixth album was recorded in Kentucky and features the already played title track and Wonderful (The Way I Feel) as well as plenty of songs that have yet to be performed live. We also found out that MMJ came very close to recording music for a new version of The Muppets band Electric Mayhem that would’ve led to Gorillaz-like performances where the band performed behind a screen while an animated version “bashed away onstage.” In another Muppets close call, the Kentucky-based band’s front man, Jim James, wrote a couple of songs for the new Muppets movie featuring Jason Segel that didn’t make the cut. Regardless, we can’t wait to hear Circuital when it drops this spring.

We were also very excited to hear that My Morning Jacket will give away six sets of weekly downloads starting today. The first batch of five tracks comes from the five-piece’s Terminal 5 run last October. We’ll get a taste of Circuital as part of the download series final installment in week six.
