Multi-platinum musician Jack Johnson announces the release of a new studio album, Meet The Moonlight, available June 24 through Brushfire Records/Republic Records. The albums lead single One Step Ahead is available today through all digital platforms, alongside an accompanying video
Meet The Moonlight, Johnsons eighth studio album and first full-length release in five years, was produced by Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Perfume Genius, Jim James) and recorded both in Los Angeles (at Sound City and EastWest) and The Mango Tree (Johnsons studio in Hawaii). The creation process marks a major artistic milestone from past work, taking shape from a one-on-one collaboration with Mills (whose contributions included everything from fretless guitar to Moog synth to steel drums) and unveiled an intimate and highly experimental process that involved embedding Johnsons elegantly stripped-back arrangements with enchanting sonic details.
When Blake and I first got in touch wed send each other playlists, and over time we realized we were drawn to music that sounds effortless despite all the effort put into making it, says Johnson. After a while we got a language together and I gained a trust in him that allowed me to let go, push outside my comfort zone, and get to a sound I really loved.
On Earth Day, Johnson will perform an intimate set on the Kkua Learning Farm, an educational and agricultural destination located in the heart of Haleiwa, Hawaii. The farm is part of the latest project of Johnsons Kkua Hawaii Foundation which is establishing agricultural, educational, and retail activities that promote local food, waste reduction, and environmental stewardship. Tune in to @jackjohnson on social media Friday, April 22nd on Earth Day to watch the performance and for a special announcement from Johnson himself. Time and additional details will be announced soon.
This summer, Johnson will embark on a 35-date summer tour, kicking off June 21 at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH, with second shows recently added in several markets due to demand. The full Meet The Moonlight 2022 Tour itinerary is below and tickets are available through www.jackjohnsonmusic.com/tour.
Continuing a commitment to support sustainability and local community projects, all net proceeds earned through Platinum and Premium ticketing programs will be donated to the Johnson Ohana Foundation to support All At Once Non-Profit Partners at each concert. In addition, $2 from every ticket will support the environment, with half being directed to carbon offset projects and the other half to support the All At Once Non-Profit Partners and their environmental projects, plastic free initiatives, and food security efforts.
