Hear My Morning Jacket's Stirring Song About Gun Violence news

My Morning Jacket condemn gun violence on their funk-oriented new song, “Magic Bullet,” posted on Soundcloud. “I don’t pretend to think that a song can fix or change the world instantly, and I don’t pretend to know the ins and outs of the political landscape and proper gun control legislation,” the band wrote in a statement accompanying the track. “But if we say nothing, then nothing will ever change. And things have got to change.”

On “Magic Bullet,” Jim James sings: “I know there’s a solution deep within myself/ But I ain’t never gonna reach it without somebody’s help” over a static drum beat and synths. “Ain’t no way to solve a problem of the streets/ With an itchy trigger finger, servant of disease.”

“Hate comes from the illusion that we are separate and cut off from one another by factors like race and religion but this simply is not true,” the band wrote. “It does not matter your race/creed/sexual orientation we are all filled with the same beautiful blood – a mix of old and new generations … A beautiful mix of male and female and all the colors rolled up into this wonderful gift we call life.”

“I don’t pretend to think that a song can fix or change the world instantly, and I don’t pretend to know the ins and outs of the political landscape and proper gun control legislation,” the note continues. “BUT if we say nothing, then nothing will ever change. And things have got to change.”

In May, My Morning Jacket issued a remixed, remastered version of their breakthrough 2003 LP, It Still Moves. James recently released the ominous “Everything (The Universe)” as part of Apple’s music series celebrating NASA’s Juno Mission.
