My Morning Jacket

My Morninig Jacket released a new mp3 from what will be their 5th studio album. The track (and album name) is Evil urges and currently set for a June 20th, 2008 release date. Frontman / producer Jim James had this to say about the album title (courtesy of Wired).

"The world today is such a confused place. Things that people think are good
values are obviously twisted, but there are other things considered evil that
obviously aren't. There is real evil out there, but Evil Urges is about how all
of these things that you've been told are evil really aren't, unless they're
actually hurting something or somebody."

The band also said they wanted this album to contain less of a traditional rock n roll produced sound, but more of what they represent at a live performace.

This band slowly grew on my after 2005 Z but really in the lasttwo year I've become more and more into it this band after getting a hold of the live Okonoks double disc album. Looking forward to this one-

Absolutely one of my favorite bands of all time. I've heard some live tracks from SXSW of their new songs....all I have to say is get ready for "Smokin from Shootin", "Thank You" and "I'm Amazed"....great, GREAT songs!
