My Morning Jacket have released a track from their new album.

You can hear “Big Decisions” below.


The song is from The Waterfall, their first studio album since 2011’s Circuital.

The Waterfall is released on May 4 on ATO/Capitol Records and has been produced by Tucker Martine. It is the first of two albums intended for release before the end of 2016.

Speaking to Uncut for our 2015 Album Preview, Jim James said, “It’s the longest it’s ever taken us to make a record. We were out in Stinson Beach [California] for about a month recording and then in Louisville and then in Portland. We’ve been mixing in Portland for about a month. We recorded 24 songs, ten are going to be on this record. We divided them up into what we feel are two really cool records.

“Because this album took a year to make, I see a lot of the seasons in this record. There is a song called ‘Spring’, which doesn’t take a lot to work out. I see waterfalls and I see leaves blowing and I see plants dying. I see those kinds of images throughout this record.”

The band are scheduled to play at the End Of The Road festival on September 5 and London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on September 7.


The tracklisting for The Waterfall is:

1. ‘Believe (Nobody Knows)’
2. ‘Compound Fracture’
3. ‘Like A River’
4. ‘In Its Infancy (The Waterfall)’
5. ‘Get The Point’
6. ‘Spring (Among The Living)’
7. ‘Thin Line’
8. ‘Big Decisions’
9. ‘Tropics (Erase Traces)’
10. ‘Only Memories Remain’
