My Morning Jacket, came in at number 49 on the Billboard 200, number 8 on the Top Rock Albums and number 7 on the Independent Albums charts.
“I hope this album brings people a lot of joy and relief, especially since we’ve all been cooped up for so long,” lead singer Jim James said about the new album. “I know that feeling you get from driving around blasting music you love, or even lying in bed and crying to the music you love. The fact that we’re able to be a part of people’s lives in that way is so magical to us, and it feels really good that we’re still here.”
Singer-songwriter from Asheville, North Carolina, Indigo De Souza, most recent album is, Any Shape You Take, and was released in August 2021. Featuring "hooky, jagged" indie rock songs that have been described collectively as a "masterwork" of the genre, "steeped in alternative '90s goodness", and has been regarded as a "masterful slice of grunge pop."
