Nada mais nada menos que dezaseis inéditos é aquilo com que os seguidores dos My Morning Jacket podem contar na reedição do longa-duração de estreia de 1999, The Tennessee Fire.

O disco vai sair já no próximo dia 02 de Agosto pela Darla Records e celebra os vinte anos do lançamento do debut da banda de Jim James. Embrulhado no formato de triplo álbum com uma série de fotos dos primordios da banda de Louisville, a edição de vigésimo aniversário mantem-se fiel ao conceito e ao alinhamento original acresencentando também alguns esboços das ideias usadas pela editora e por Jim James na altura.

No site da editora pode-se ler que

In February, 1999, Darla Records received a charming Valentine’s Day love letter with artwork and 4-track cassette tape demo in the mail from Jim James with the very first My Morning Jacket recordings. Early one Sunday morning, I popped the tape in and fell instantly in love. I could not find the accompanying letter with contact info! Chandra soon found it after I raved at her that she must get out of bed come hear what I was hearing. I called Jim and we began to plan the work. Weeks later, after we’d established a track list, including four songs re-recorded in a real studio, and had artwork together for a debut album, I thought to myself, “I really love this. There’s nothing like it in the marketplace. I hope it can sell 1500.” And the rest is history. – Mr. Darla

A nota do anúncio nas redes sociais dos My Morning Jacket, o alinhamento completo da reedição e a recordação de “They Ran” -enquanto não é revelado nenhum dos inéditos -, um dos temas de The Tennessee Fire, tudo para ver e ouvir em baixo.

Wow. I cannot believe it has now been over 20 years since we recorded THE TENNESSEE FIRE on my cousin John’s grandparents farm out in ShelbyvillE, KY in a little studio called “Above the Cadillac”. What a life changing time that was for me — a cosmic door opening to a new universe, thanks to the generosity of family and the spirits of music and connection, I have been so lucky to encounter. We tried to do as many fucked up things as we could that we loved and hoped folks would enjoy. We laughed a lot and we cried some too, ha. We are so grateful and humble that people are still enjoying it so many years later, and we also really love playing these songs live still after all these years, ha ha ha. We offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has listened since the beginning/jumped on along the way, and all the new folks just hearing the music and getting into it. Much has changed and shifted over the years in the world of My Morning Jacket both on earth and in other realms, and I am so grateful to everyone who has ever been involved with the band on any level that helped it grow. I am grateful for the joy and thankful to have learned some things from the pain/disappointments that I hope will help in the future. Love is music, music is god, god is love, and I feel so blessed to be able to share this thing called music with so many wonderful souls both as a musician and as a listener myself. There is so much wonderful music out there. Peace and love. We’re proud to announce the 20th Anniversary edition of “The Tennessee Fire”. The expanded deluxe edition includes all 16 original tracks and 16 previously unreleased and unheard songs, demos, outtakes, alternate versions. Album comes out on August 2nd!
