(July 14, 2017) Multi-platinum recording artist Jack Johnson announces the release of his 7th studio album, All The Light Above It Too, available September 8 through Johnson’s own Brushfire Records label. The album’s first single, “My Mind Is For Sale” was released today, accompanied by a lyric video and is now available to purchase through all digital platforms, along with the full album pre-order here. Fans are also able to pre-order a limited number of exclusive album bundles, including a special blue and clear color swirl vinyl package, through www.jackjohnsonmusic.com/store.
All The Light Above It Too was recorded over the past year at Johnson’s Hawaii based Mango Tree Studio. For the first time in years Johnson handled most of the instrumentation himself, echoing the four-track recordings that launched his career over 17 years ago.
“This album shares what has been on my mind during the past year or so,” says Johnson. “A year in which I sailed through the North Atlantic Gyre for a documentary about plastic pollution in the ocean. A year in which Trump was elected as the President of the United States. A year in which I camped, surfed, got stitches, explored, dreamed, shared time and endless conversations with my family and friends...all of which inspired these songs. I usually make sketches of the songs first then set up a time to actually record the album. This time around the original sketches became the final versions. I didn’t want to lose any of the spirit that a song has in its rawest form.” To finish out the record Johnson called upon producer Robbie Lackritz (Feist, Bahamas), along with his longtime band mates to play on a few of the tracks.
Johnson and his band just embarked on the west coast leg of their summer tour and will play a second sold out show tonight at Denver’s Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre, along with additional sold out shows at the Hollywood Bowl (July 16), two sold-out shows at the Santa Barbara Bowl (July 17-18), two sold-out shows at Berkley’s Greek Theatre (July 26-27) and more.
Johnson has also added southern fall tour dates kicking off September 27 through October 5.
