Kyle Meredith With... My Morning Jacket

After a brief hiatus, My Morning Jacket have returned with their first record in five years, The Waterfall II.

One of the songs, "Magic Bullet", was originally released in response to a 2016 gun-related killing, and James discusses what the song means today with his hometown of Louisville at the center of a similar story involving the murder of Breonna Taylor. James also talks about the water concept that flows throughout the set, producing S.G. Goodman’s record, and -- get this -- the news that the band have finished an album of all new songs.
