Jim James Tours New Solo Album

By February 1, 2013

Follow me on:

My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James is releasing his (really good) debut solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God, on February 5.

And, with the album imminent, the hirsute rocker has lined up a bunch of North American liveshows —through April/May— in support of the record.

"I just feel really proud of it," James told me in a recent interview. "I gave it everything I could until it was done, and it had to go. Now I'm excited to tour it, and bring it to the world...

"Everything that someone makes —whether they're an artist or a musician or a painter or whatever— is totally going to fit into the one continuum, no matter how much it seems like it might be different. What you're effectively saying, when you make anything artistic, is: 'This was me, then. This is what I was, and where I was, in this period of my life.' Hopefully you're also saying: 'and this is the best I could do.'"
