Jim James writing new material a month after ‘Evil Urges’

My Morning Jacket revealed they have begun work on their sixth studio album, despite releasing their last album, ‘Evil Urges’ last month.

“I’m already writing songs for the new record and stuff,” said frontman Jim James speaking to BBC 6music.

“The process is weird because whenever we make a record, the songs come from one or two years of life that you’ve lived.

“Then by the time you get to make that record you’re in that zone but when it comes out, it’s a year or two later. So, for me personally, I’m working on the next thing.”

The band played on Sunday (July 6) at Hop Farm with Neil Young and Primal Scream and have two live dates this month.
