My Morning Jacket‘s 2011 album Circuital is getting the reissue treatment.
An expanded, deluxe version of the record will arrive December 9 and includes 10 previously unreleased demo recordings.
“Every record is like a time machine, and we all keep changing and changing,” says frontman Jim James.
“I’ve come to see myself as a kind of older sibling to the younger version of me,” he continues. “So it’s almost like I become two beings when I sing a song from the olden times: one is the person who wrote the song so long ago, the other is the current me who’s there as support for my younger self, alive forever in the multiverse. And then those two voices combine to form something new and different every time.”
Circuital, the sixth MMJ album, is the band’s highest-charting release, having debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200. It spawned the single “Holdin on to Black Metal.”
MMJ’s most recent album is 2021’s self-titled effort.
