My Morning Jacket returned to the headlines last month with the nearly-surprise release of their latest studio album, The Waterfall II, a follow-up to 2015’s The Waterfall. Ironically, the COVID-19 pandemic acted as a catalyst for the long-awaited release of the songs heard on The Waterfall II, as singer/guitarist Jim James rediscovered one of the songs, “Spinning My Wheels”, while on a walk early on during lockdown. According to a statement shared with the album’s announcement last month, James was struck by the lyric, “Hypnotized from doing the same old thing,” and felt compelled to finally release the music to the public.
Announcing this month’s webcast: our set from @forecastle 2012. Tune in Friday at 8:30pm EST on the MMJ Facebook and YouTube pages.
