The Jayhawks to Release New Album ‘Mockingbird Time’ in September

US alt-country band The Jayhawks are to release their eighth album ‘Mockingbird Time’ on 5th September. Following the announcement of their recent reunion after an eight-year hiatus and their upcoming tour, the band have now confirmed details of their next release. ‘Mockingbird Time’ is the band’s first album since 2003’s ‘Rainy Day Music’ and the first to feature their original singer and songwriter Mark Olson in 16 years – the last being 1995’s ‘Tomorrow the Green Grass’.

Later this month, The Jayhawks will be preceding the release of the album with a new single ‘She Walks in So Many Ways’ on 25th July. The Jayhawks will be bringing their European tour over to the UK in August – see below for dates and tickets.

The Jayhawks were formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1985 and released their eponymous debut album the following year. Their fourth album, 1995’s ‘Tomorrow the Green Grass’, was the first Jayhawks album to chart in the UK. Following Olson’s departure in 1995, Gary Louris took over as the band’s principal songwriter. The Jayhawks have not released an album since 2003’s ‘Rainy Day Music’, although the band have never officially split and have continued to tour together occasionally. In 2008, Olson and Louris reunited to release the album ‘Ready for the Flood’.

The Jayhawks UK & Ireland Tour Dates are as follows:

Tue August 2nd 2011 - HMV Institute Birmingham, Birmingham
Wed August 3rd 2011 - O2 ABC Glasgow, Glasgow
Thu August 4th 2011 - Manchester Academy 2, Manchester
Fri August 5th 2011 - HMV Forum, London

The Jayhawks ‘Mockingbird Time’ (Album Review)
Sun 25 Sep 2011
As a very brief introduction for anyone unfamiliar with the work of Minnesota’s The Jayhawks, they are a band that have been making highly influential country rock music for over 25 years. So your apologies for the late start are graciously accepted. However, if you are already acquainted, you’ll be pleased to hear that the original line-up, including founding member Mark Olson, are back together for the first time since 1995’s ‘Tomorrow the Green Grass’.
Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.
Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.
