My Morning Jacket’s ‘The Waterfall’ Murals Hit U.S. Streets
With their seventh studio album, The Waterfall, approaching its official release, alt-rock icons My Morning Jacket have teamed up with Beautify Earth for a series of murals to be painted in multiple cities around the U.S. Each mural is an artist's personal interpretation of the album cover; you can check out Codak Smith's vision, located at 706 Lincoln Avenue in Venice, L.A., above.
There are two more murals that have already been unveiled, one at 895 West Chicago Avenue in Chicago (painted by Mr. Prvrt) and another at North 5th Street and Berry in Williamsburg (by Cern). You can check out both of the beautiful images below. Two more will be displayed this weekend in Louisville and Nashville.
The Jim James-fronted rock outfit also announced the establishment of their own philanthropic organization dubbed the Waterfall Project, focusing on environmental and climate issues for the foreseeable future.
The Waterfall is due out on May 4 via ATO Records, and the band will head out on an extensive tour in support of its release beginning on May 15, the dates of which can be found here. They've also recently announced that they will release another new album sometime in 2016.
