New Music Tuesday: Jack Johnson

jackjohnson2So we here at FreshScouts have been following Jack Johnson for almost 10 years now.  We first heard some of his debut releases even before they were debut releases.  During the Napster craze, we came across a recording of “Flake” almost a year before its commercial radio success.  How did we know it was going to be so popular?  Because we’re awesome.  That’s why.

His latest release (6th album release to be exact) is back to the same old Jack Johnson we first fell in love with.  He’s followed a long and winding road since the release of Brushfire Fairytales in 2001.  Since then he’s recorded two signature style albums, one children’s album and one album that definitely showed the darker, emotional side of his music.  It’s hard not to love a Jack Johnson album and this one’s vintage flavor (at least vintage to 2001) is just in time for summer.  He tends to bring a little Hawaii to wherever you are listening to him which is always a good weapon to have to fight the rainy day blues.

If you want to get in on the action, check out one of his summer tour dates and grab your tickets early.  His shows generally tend to sell out and they promise to be the perfect thing to make your summer an awesome one.  I still remember my entire summer with Brushfire Fairytales.  I probably listened to it 1,000 times.  Or at least 20 times.  That’s still a lot.

Check out the video for the single “You and Your Heart”:
