Jack Johnson will release his seventh studio album All the Light Above It Too on 8th September 2017.

All the Light Above It Too is available for pre-order now. There is a limited number of exclusive album bundles, including a special blue and clear colour swirl vinyl package, through www.jackjohnsonmusic.com/store.
Johnson recorded the album over the past year at his Hawaii based Mango Tree Studio. He handled most of the instrumentation himself, harking back to the four-track recordings that launched his career over 17 years ago.
“This album shares what has been on my mind during the past year or so,” says Johnson. “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. This 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.”
Producer Robbie Lackritz (Feist, Bahamas), along with Johnson’s longtime band mates, helped to complete the record.
