My Morning Jacket front man Jim James has announced the release of his first full-length solo LP, Regions of Light and Sound of God. The album is set for release on February 5th, 2013 but you can listen to the first single “Know Til Now” on Soundcloud and you can pre-order the entire album now. According to Pitchfork, James plays every instrument on the album and also served as engineer. The songs were inspired primarily by Lynd Ward’s 1929 graphic novel God’s Man, which “chronicles an artist’s struggles with temptation and corruption, along with finding true love,” according to the press release. Jim James said, “Some of the things happening in the book were happening to me in real life, in a very strange and painful, then a very beautiful way.”
