Multi-platinum singer/songwriter Jack Johnson returns with his seventh studio album, All The Light Above It Too, released on his own Brushfire Records label. All The Light Above It Toowas recorded over the past year at Johnson's Hawaii based Mango Tree Studio. For the first time in years Johnson handled most of the instrumentation himself, echoing the four-track recordings that launched his career over seventeen years ago.
"This album shares what has been on my mind during the past year or so," says Johnson. "A year in which I sailed through the North Atlantic Gyre for a documentary about plastic pollution in the ocean. A year in which Trump was elected as the President of the United States. A year in which I camped, surfed, got stitches, explored, dreamed, shared time and endless conversations with my family and friends...all of which inspired these songs. I usually make sketches of the songs first then set up a time to actually record the album. This time around the original sketches became the final versions. I didn't want to lose any of the spirit that a song has in its rawest form."
To finish out the record Johnson called upon producer Robbie Lackritz (Feist, Bahamas), along with his longtime band mates to play on a few of the tracks. Poignant lead single "My Mind is for Sale," is a politically charged anti-Trump anthem which still manages to maintain his characteristic easy-going instrumental sound.
