Jim James Announces Solo Album Out 11/4 + Tour

Jim James’ Second Solo Album
Eternally Even
out November 4th

Announces Headline US Tour

“One of rock’s most powerful singers and one of its most fearless architects” -Rolling Stone

Jim James, frontman of My Morning Jacket, announces the release of Eternally Even, out November 4 via ATO/Capitol Records.

Defying categorization, James’ second solo project, Eternally Even, co-produced by Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes) and Jim James, is a heart-thumping call to action. The timing of its release, smack in the middle of election season, is no accident.

“I wanted to make an album that hopefully speaks to the issues of the day, many of which, sadly, are issues we have been dealing with since the beginning of time.” says James. “Most of what I think about right now is how so many things in the world are SO fucked up- our political system is broken and corrupt…our earth is being destroyed by climate change…people are not treating each other with equality and respect… and I think- are we going to make it?  Are we going to figure it out and fix it before it’s too late? Can we ever truly open our hearts and embrace love in all its beautiful forms? I think it’s still possible. I still have hope in humanity. I’m just trying to be a part of the discussion and encourage people to speak out for equality, to not be afraid to speak out for peace and love. All of us feel afraid at times in these absolutely insane times, but its important we speak our minds, cast our votes, and do not give in to fear and hatred.”

In early 2013, his first solo full length Regions of Light and Sound of God was released and met with widespread critical acclaim. Praised as “truly breathtaking” by Time Out and “magnificent” by Rolling Stone, the album was followed with a sold-out national headlining tour and appearances on Late Night with Jimmy FallonJimmy Kimmel LiveLate Show with David Letterman and Austin City Limits.
