Singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has a new album and has extended his sold-out U.S. tour.
The record, All the Light Above It Too, features the anti-Trump single, “My Mind is for Sale” and is scheduled for a Sept. 8 release. The single itself was released today along with a a lyric video and is now available through all digital platforms, along with the full album pre-order here.
Johnson fans can pre-order a limited number of exclusive album bundles, including a special blue and clear color swirl vinyl package, by going here.
All The Light Above It Too was recorded at Johnson’s Mango Tree Studio in Hawaii. He handled most of the instrumentation himself, going back to the four-track recordings that launched his career over 17 years ago. Johnson enlisted the help of producer Robbie Lackritz and longtime band mates to play on a few of the tracks.
“This album shares what has been on my mind during the past year or so,” Johnson said. “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.”
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) and two sold-out shows at Berkley’s Greek Theatre (July 26-27).
Johnson added several southern fall tour dates from Sept. 27- Oct. 5.
Fans can get tickets through the Ticketmaster Verified Fan presale here before July 15 at Midnight, which will run until July 17. Remaining tickets will be available to the general public on Friday, July 21 at 10 a.m EDT at Johnson’s site. For these eight new shows, every ticket order will come with one code that can be redeemed for a free physical copy of the new album.
