Kentucky rockers My Mornin Jacket have been out of the picture the last three years, but will finally return this spring with their sixth album, Circuital.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, frontman Jim James described the new album as “the most live record we’ve ever done.”
Having recorded 2008′s underwhelming Evil Urges in a proper New York studio, the band retreated to their home of Louisville and converted the gymnasium of a local church into their own studio.
While no music has been released just yet, one track that has sites gabbing is something called “Holdin’ on to Black Metal,” which features “massed female voices and what sounds like wah-wah-ed horns.” Says James, “‘I want it to sound like we’re Cuban or Cambodian kids, and we’re wearing berets and we’re walking through an alley and we stumble upon this band, and it explodes into this crazy sing-along.’”Tweet
