My Morning Jacket Is Working On A New Live Album, According To Jim James

first_imgMy Morning Jacket remains as busy as ever these days, having just recently gone through their seminal 2003 album It Still Moves for an extensive re-release. The band also rocked Red Rocks Amphitheatre for two nights, and are set to headline Lockn’ later this summer. So what does the group have in store?According to Jim James, in a new interview, a live album release could be imminent. James was asked about including demos for each track on the It Still Moves re-release, and he spoke about how the songs have changed in the live setting over time. The quote from the Noisey interview reads:“I think [demo versions are] fun. I know any band I enjoy I really love hearing the demo recordings. It’s such a cool thing to hear. It’s usually just the person sitting there with a guitar or piano or whatever just working through the song or committing the song to tape for the first time just to remember it. I dunno… there’s just something so fascinating about that when you compare it to not only what the album version ends up being but if you listen to a live recording of how the song is now it’s even different still. It’s kind of cool that a song can change and grow over time. We’re in the process of doing another live record so another thing that I found while remixing this is like ‘Wow, all these songs have changed even more live.’”We can’t wait to see what MMJ has in store!last_img
