My Morning Jacket Share Title Track from New Album Circuital

Nearly three years since their last release, My Morning Jacket are now on the cusp of releasing the eagerly awaited new album, Circuital (ATO Records, May 31st).  The band has been gearing it all up by releasing songs from each of their five Terminal 5 shows this past October.  Today, My Morning Jacket are giving us a taste of the new album by sharing the title track and revealing it's enigmatic cover art.

Click HERE to download the song "Circuital" from the band's website.  The site is also now offering pre-orders for the album, and a beautiful limited edition deluxe package that includes an exclusive 30 minute documentary dvd, high quality lithograph portrait taken by Danny Clinch and many other goodies.  Ten deluxe versions will come with a 'Golden Ticket" entitling the bearer to receive an original signed print by the band and Clinch.

Like the album as a whole, "Circuital" was laid down almost entirely live as the honest spirit and human spontaneity are felt throughout the listening experience.  The song Circuital, while a seven minute epic, is but a taste of what to expect – the collection of songs is truly eclectic and entrancing from beginning to end.

Bing Crosby: Seasons (Deluxe Edition)
Bing's final album, originally released in 1977, has never been available on CD, let alone with 13 bonus tracks! This new deluxe edition features the original twelve tracks plus Bing's very last recordings, made at a BBC session three days before his death, and five poems recorded for fan clubs but never distributed. Includes from the original release 'Seasons; On the Very First Day of the Year; June in January; Spring Will Be a Little Late This Year; April Showers; June Is Bustin' Out All Over; In the Good Old Summertime; Summer Wind; Autumn in New York; September Song; Sleigh Ride', and 'Yesterday When I Was Young', plus the bonus poems 'Around the Corner; If; The Singers; Lucy Gray (Solitude)', and 'The Slaves Dream', and the BBC recordings 'Feels Good, Feels Right; Nevertheless; The Only Way to Go; Summer Wind; The Night Is Young and You're So Beautiful; There's Nothing I Haven't Sung About; As Time Goes By', and 'Once in a While'!

Bing Crosby: Return To Paradise Islands (Deluxe Edition)
Bing's collection of Hawaiian favorites was recorded in 1963 by Frank Sinatra's Reprise label and has never been available on CD or even reissued at all! And for this edition a new stereo mix has been created from the original session tapes that is simply, well, paradisiaical. Bing is accompanied by the Nelson Riddle Orchestra on 'Keep Your Eyes on the Hands; Forevermore; Love and Aloha; Beautiful Kahana; The Hukilau Song; The Old Plantation; Lovely Hula Hands; Frangipani Blossom; Farewell My Kane; Adventures in Paradise; Return to Paradise', and Home in Hawaii'. Six bonus tracks include a brief session outtake of 'Return to Paradise' and five previously unissued Hawaiian tracks recorded in 1961 featuring 'My Little Grass Shack (in Kealakakua, Hawaii); The Cockeyed Mayor of Kaunakakai; Yaaka Hula Hickey Dula; Ukulele Lady', and 'King's Serenade'.

Bing Crosby:
On The Sentimental Side (Deluxe Edition - previously unreleased album)
Recorded in 1962 and never released, this collection of popular songs, many dating back to Bing's boyhood, has been long rumored to exist by Crosby fans, and finally appears here with five bonus tracks! The original album is all medleys: 'My Bonnie/The Band Played On; Always/Wishing; Remember/Put on Your Old Gray Bonnet; All Alone/In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree; How Can I Leave Thee/A Bird In a Gilded Cage/The Sidewalks of New York; If I Didn't Care/Blueberry Hill; Beautiful Dreamer/The Last Rose of Summer; Roll On Silver Moon/Now the Day Is Over; Tom Dooley/The Old Gray Mare; Together/What'll I Do; Look For the Silver Lining/Say It With Music', and 'Did You Ever See a Dream Walking/A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody'. The bonus tracks hail from Bing's 1950s CBS radio shows with Buddy Cole; they include 'Because; Love's Old Sweet Song; Smilin' Through; Whither Thou Goest', and a 1960 take of Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral'!

Bing Crosby: Bing On Broadway (new album)

This brand-new collection of rare material features him singing selections from such legendary Broadway musicals as 'South Pacific, The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, Can-Can, Anything Goes, My Fair Lady' and many others, accompanied by Buddy Cole & His Trio on 17 tracks and John Scott Trotter on two tracks. Includes 'Swanee; Carolina in the Morning; Mandy; How Long Has This Been Going On?; My Heart Stood Still; Crazy Rhythm; Ain't Misbehavin'; Fine and Dandy; But Not for Me; New Sun in the Sky; Taking a Chance on Love; It's Only a Paper Moon; All Through the Night; Come Rain or Come Shine; A Cockeyed Optimist; It's All Right with Me; Hey There; Heart', and 'Get Me to the Church on Time'.

Bing Crosby: El Senor Bing (Deluxe Edition)
Bing loved Spanish music, and for this 1960 collection, recorded for his own Project label, he was accompanied by none other than the Billy May Orchestra— the CD debut of this LP!

Marta/The Rose in Her Hair; Again/Allez-Vous-En (Go Away); In the Still of the Night/I Could Have Danced All Night; Pagan Love Song/Cuban Love Song; Down Argentine Way/What a Difference a Day Made; Heavenly Night (Cielito Lindo)/My Shawl; Malaguena (at the Crossroads)/Andalucia (The Breeze and I); How High the Moon/Old Devil Moon', and 'C'est Magnifique/Taking a Chance on Love'.

'Muy sabroso!'
