LISTEN: My Morning Jacket Returns with Mammoth New Track “Big Decisions”

The group’s seventh album is called The Waterfall, and is out May 4 via ATO and Capitol Records

In the wake of Built to Spill’s long-awaited return, here comes another overdue album within the guitar group pantheon, this time from My Morning Jacket. Also overcoming the largest album gap in their career, the last we saw these long-haired Kentucky dudes was with the pretty-damn-solid LP Circuital back in 2011.

Refreshed, the band has announced The Waterfall, their seventh, along with the release of the single “Big Decisions.” The track is a guitar-driven epic, because duh, but it’s also just as pretty as some of their best stuff, harking back to the It Still Moves days, complete with Harvest-style steel guitar complementing Jim James’s strange backhanded insults.

As they are known to do, My Morning Jacket are setting out on a gigantic tour, where they aim to defend their title as one of rock’s premier live acts. All that information, along with the album art and tracklist below.
