After six studio albums with My Morning Jacket, lead singer Jim James will focus his eclectic, blissful croon on a solo venture. Regions of Light and Sound of God, out February 4th via V2 Records, finds James working within the framework and indulgences of his complex tastes.
“I wanted the album to sound like it came from a different place in time,” says the My Morning Jacket lead singer. “Perhaps sounding as if it were the past of the future, if that makes any sense—like a hazy dream that a fully-realized android or humanoid capable of thought might have when it reminisces about the good old days of just being a simple robot.”
“I take walks a lot,” says James, “and as I walk, songs kind of build in my mind. So I had a full vision for a lot of the songs on this album before I even recorded one note.”
