New Release & Video: Jack Johnson – You Can’t Control It

With the release of his 7th album All The Light Above It Too out next month (8th September), US singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has revealed the visuals for You Can’t Control It

With the album tackling plastic pollution, the visual features a time-lapse of Johnson making a mosaic, which became the album artwork, from plastic products on an Oahu beach. Check it out below…

All The Light Above It Too was recorded over the past year at Jack’s Hawaii based Mango Tree Studio. For the first time in years, Johnson handled most of the instrumentation himself, echoing 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”
