My Morning Jacket announce new album

My Morning Jacket have shed light on their forthcoming album, due for release on June 10 in America.

The band's as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2005's "Z" was recorded in New York, but worked on and arranged in Colorado, where the band stayed in a remote compound.

Guitarist Carl Broemel explained: "That was priceless, because we don't all live in the same city. We just got together and played."

The album is presently unsequenced, according to Broemel, who told Billboard: "We're seeing every song to its end before we think about sequencing or which songs belong. We're just starting to be open to how they relate. In general, the record is different in a way I don't even think any of us realized until we started recording."

Produced by Joe Chiccarelli, the album is likely to be released in early June in the UK, although this has yet to be confirmed.

My Morning Jacket have also announced "An Evening With…", a special gig at New York’s historic Radio City Music Hall, to be held on June 20.
