My Morning Jacket have announced they'll be releasing a new album this May called The Waterfall. It follows 2011's Circuital.

"I feel like it’s a weird turning point for the universe," frontman Jim James says when asked about the LP's main themes. "I feel like so many people I know are getting divorced or having kids. There’s so much change going on and I feel like, for me, that one chapter has ended. And if you’re looking at a book, there’s a hand flipping the page up and it’s in between the chapter you just finished and the one that’s getting ready to start. That’s kind of the sound of this record, and my life, the sound of the page turning and not being sure what’s coming next."
