Jim James – “Know Til Now”

My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James has held down more than his share of side projects, including a solo EP as Yim Yames. But now he’s giving a real shot to a solo career, releasing a full-scale album under his own name. Early next year, he’ll release Regions Of Light And Sound Of God. He played every instrument on the album and engineered it himself, building it all around God’s Man, a 1929 graphic novel by Lynd Ward. Below, use the widget to download “Know Til Now,” a six-and-a-half minute piece of tenor-driven prog-soul that, to James’s credit, sounds basically nothing like My Morning Jacket. We’ve also got the album’s tracklist below.

01 “State Of The Art (A.E.I.O.U)”
02 “Know Til Now”
03 “Dear One”
04 “A New Life”
05 “Exploding”
06 “Of The Mother Again”
07 “Actress”
08 “All Is Forgiven”
09 “God’s Love To Deliver”
