Even though their fifth album, Evil Urges, was released only last month, My Morning Jacket is already at work on a sixth collection of tunes. In an interview with the BBC, Jim James said that he was already in the process of writing songs for the album's follow-up:
"I'm already writing songs for the new record and stuff," he said. "The process is weird because whenever we make a record, the songs come from one or two years of life that you've lived. Then by the time you get to make that record you're in that zone but when it comes out, it's a year or two later. So, for me personally, I'm working on the next thing."
That's quick, but upcoming new MMJ music is good to hear about.
