Jack Johnson Announces Album & Gigs
The light is shining on Jack Johnson fans today. The folk rock singer/songwriter just announced details for its new album, released the lyric video for his latest single, and confirmed and run of fall tour dates.
All The Light Above It Too is due out Sept. 8 through Johnson’s Brushfire Records label.

Johnson worked with producer Robbie Lackritz and his longtime bandmates to finish a few of the tracks.

“This album shares what has been on my mind during the past year or so,” Johnson said. “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. The 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.”
Check out the single “My Mind Is For Sale” below.
The fall dates begin Sept. 27 at Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheatre in Virginia Beach, Va. He’s also headed to PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, N.C.; Atlanta’s Lakewood Amphitheatre; and St. Augustine Amphitheatre in Florida. The last stop is Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Fla. Johnson is joined by special guest Bahamas.
