My Morning Jacket announced today a brand new self-titled album, their first in six years, will be released October 22nd. In addition, the first single & accompanying video has been released for Regularly Scheduled Programming.

In talking about Regularly Scheduled Programming, frontman Jim James says “This song really hits home for me after what we’ve gone through with the pandemic, but even before then, it felt like so many of us were trading real life for social media, trading our own stories for the storylines on TV, trading our consciousness for drugs. We need to help each other wake up to real love before it’s too late.”

My Morning Jacket, the self-titled album will be their first since 2015’s The Waterfall. It was produced and engineered by Jim James at the 64 Sound in Los Angeles.

“I hope this album brings people a lot of joy and relief, especially since we’ve all been cooped up for so long,” says James. “I know that feeling you get from driving around blasting music you love, or even lying in bed and crying to the music you love. The fact that we’re able to be a part of people’s lives in that way is so magical to us, and it feels really good that we’re still around to keep doing that.”
