My Morning Jacket‘s sixth studio release will be out in only a few weeks, and after the band offered the record’s self-titled, “Circuital“, up for free download, it has now thrown out another bone to fans as part of the Self-Hypnosis series. The feature is an exclusive for MMJ fans registered in the fan club, in the series a brand new track being released from time to time to offer a sound track for ones self exploratory ventures – the first song from the series is the below streaming “Octoplasm”. Yes, this all sounds pretty weird, but if you’re looking for an explanation, lend your ears to the band’s official statement.
“My Morning Jacket would like to welcome all those who join the new MMJ Roll Call fan club into their much talked about and highly controversial “Self-Hypnosis Series” as well. The Self-Hypnosis Series will begin an exploration into the core of each individual heart, mind, body, and soul that joins the Roll Call fan club.
Based on a desire to help each individual fan reach a state of emotional bliss, a new algorithm was recently developed at Removador HQ. It can sense listeners temperature and emotional climate at the time of listening-thru any listening device, be it speakers or headphones, and cater a listening experience truly unique for each listener.
MMJ will carefully handcraft and carve pieces of music that will provide a vehicle for the listener to enter a new gateway of self exploration and understanding based on their current state of mind at the time of each listen. The Self-Hypnosis Series will start with a piece entitled “Octoplasm” which will be available via download immediately upon joining Roll Call. New titles in the Self-Hypnosis series will appear randomly, or on a strict schedule and will be available only to Roll Call members. We hope you are to enjoy!”
Circuital is out 5/31 via ATO.
