MY MORNING JACKET announce they are joining forces with award-winning filmmaker TODD HAYNES for the latest edition of "UNSTAGED: AN ORIGINAL SERIES FROM AMERICAN EXPRESS." In the partnership with YOUTUBE and VEVO, "UNSTAGED" features some of the music industry’s most breakthrough artists playing at landmark venues across the country, while tapping some of today’s most influential filmmakers to direct the live-streams and using digital and social media to connect the online audience to the live shows in unexpected ways.
This marks the second collaboration between the director and the group, as MY MORNING JACKET’s JIM JAMES appeared in HAYNES’ Academy Award-nominated film I’m Not There. HAYNES will film the band’s performance on MAY 31st at LOUISVILLE’s historic PALACE THEATER, which will be live-streamed at 9p (ET) at www.youtube.com/mymorningjacketVEVO.
MY MORNING JACKET will release Circuital, their sixth full-length album, on MAY 31st via ATO RECORDS.
