Will My Morning Jacket play any shows in 2014?



The outcome is unclear.

“We’re blessed enough to have such a diverse audience participation, seeing 40- and 50-year-olds along with 16-year-olds. Nerds and jocks and hippies and preppies, indie-rock kids and punk-rock kids, they all seem to come out to the shows. I don’t feel a particular exclusive allegiance to any of them. I think it’s part of a greater musical collective.”

“When I look at some of the things that I have written, it’s just me looking back and going “Why am I so confused?” And “Why am I hurting” because I don’t want to hurt, I want to be peaceful.”

This isn’t done just yet, but have a look if you feel like it.

“As long as we’ve been alive, the world has been hugely tilted in favor of masculinity and is totally fucking itself because of it. That’s nowhere close to being over, but hopefully, we’re turning the spirits back on their axis to make it even.”

“I never ask Jim about his lyrics, and I usually don’t even see them until we get copies (of the CD booklet), so it was really interesting to hear him talk about certain songs.”

“Lots of people like to write about how we’re crazy hippies from Louisville, Kentucky, with long hair, but they don’t write about how they felt like their brains were oozing out of their ears when they heard a song or how they wanted to cry or laugh or throw up, really feel like ripping somebody’s head off, or making love I think lots of the music industry and lots of things are wasted because people aren’t conveying emotion anymore, they’re just writing about what a band looks like or how many people were there. That stuff doesn’t matter.”
