I honestly didn’t know about his comeback until earlier this morning. His last LP, ‘Sleep Through The Static’ was released last 2008 and received ginormous amounts of success. Recently (which I’m not informed about) Jack revealed details to his upcoming 5th studio album, ‘To The Sea’ which will hit stores June 1st. The first single off the album is ‘You and Your Heart’ and was released digitally via iTunes last April 6th.
‘You and Your Heart’ is not far away from other Jack Johnson tracks. It’s still guitar-led that slightly percusses its way to something quite summery and actually upbeat. It’s not better than ‘If I Had Eyes’ but still announces Jack’s ability to still make good music that doesn’t sound boring. At first, it might be a blah to people hearing the track for the first time but it actually works once you’ve let yourself to like it. It’s not that hard to do, to be honest.
