My Morning Jacket frontman and guitarist Jim James has announced a new solo album, Eternally Even, out November 4th. The album was co-produced by James and Blake Mills, whose recent production work includes Dawes’ new album, We’re All Gonna Die, and the last Alabama Shakes album, Sound & Color.
James will be out on the road for a month long tour in November. His Philly date is Friday, November 18th, at the Fillmore Philly. Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 23rd.
About his second solo album, James said in a press release:
“I wanted to make an album that hopefully speaks to the issues of the day, many of which, sadly, are issues we have been dealing with since the beginning of time.” says James. “Most of what I think about right now is how so many things in the world are SO fucked up- our political system is broken and corrupt…our earth is being destroyed by climate change…people are not treating each other with equality and respect… and I think- are we going to make it? Are we going to figure it out and fix it before it’s too late? Can we ever truly open our hearts and embrace love in all its beautiful forms? I think it’s still possible. I still have hope in humanity. I’m just trying to be a part of the discussion and encourage people to speak out for equality, to not be afraid to speak out for peace and love. All of us feel afraid at times in these absolutely insane times, but its important we speak our minds, cast our votes, and do not give in to fear and hatred.”
