Last night, Jim James of My Morning Jacket performed a solo acoustic version of "In Color" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The performance was filmed at the famed RCA Studio A in Nashville, TN by Danny Clinch. "In Color" is the current single from My Morning Jacket's critically acclaimed self-titled album from 2021. MY MORNING JACKET was produced and engineered by Jim James over two multi-week sessions at Los Angeles, CA’s 64 Sound.
By leveraging its iconic past and leaning into an innovative future, Gibson has set the stage for the next era of sound for present and future generations.

Jim collaborated with Gibson to create his first-ever signature guitar, the Gibson Jim James ES-335.
My Morning Jacket has announced the launch of their new MMJ LIVE vinyl series, kicking off with LIVE 2015, collecting 16 previously unreleased live tracks recorded during 2015’s THE WATERFALL Tour. LIVE 2015 will arrive Friday, September 3 exclusively on 3LP white vinyl (with digital download card), with a digital release at a later date.
My Morning Jacket have unveiled plans for their first US headline tour in five years. The dates begin August 27 at Charlotte, NC’s Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre, and then travel through a three-night-stand at Chicago, IL’s Auditorium Theater on November 4, 5, and 6. Additional highlights include multi-night-stands at Queens, NY’s Forest Hills Stadium (September 10-11) and Seattle, WA’s Paramount Theater (October 1-2).
Officially announced earlier in the week, My Morning Jacket have released their new record, The Waterfall II, an unforeseen and timely continuation of a psychic and sonic journey begun long ago. The album was massively inspired by the band’s idyllic surroundings in Stinson Beach, CA — and a sense of charmed isolation that frontman Jim James likened to “living on our own little moon.” There, the Kentucky-bred five-piece ended up creating over two dozen songs at the mountaintop studio known as Panoramic House.

"I listened to the album two or three times that night just taking it in, living in its world, and loving it, trying to understand what this feeling was. It wasn’t happy, nor was it sad. Yet, it reflected the presence and possibility of every emotion in the rainbow, and the recording was unbelievable. The talent and musicianship were undeniable. The lyrics melted my mind." - My Morning Jacket's Jim James On American Beauty
