My Morning Jacket is currently hard at work at recording a follow-up to Evil Urges, and bassist Tom Blankenship recently told Spin that the album will be a return to earlier sounds.
“It’s worlds apart from what we were doing with Evil Urges,” he said. “We’re going back to a similar vibe that we had on the first three records. It’s definitely more laid back than it’s been in a while.”
Blakenship added that fans can expect the record to have a live feel to it. “There’s a lot, a lot, a lot of bleed going on,” he said. “It’s got that vibe to it where it sounds like everybody is in the same room.
The new My Morning Jacket album is expected to drop in May 2011. In the meantime, watch them perform with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
