Despite the fact that it’s kinda grey and crummy on the East Coast as I write this, Jack Johnson’s music immediately makes me picture sunshine, cookouts, beaches and the welcome smell of that sticky-icky wafting through the air. The Hawaiian singer/songwriter/surfer doesn’t disappoint on his latest track, “I Got You.” No, the song doesn’t sound much different from the rest of Jack Johnson’s oeuvre, but come on, how can you hate on music that makes you feel so mellow?
It’s the first track from Jack’s upcoming sixth album, From Here to Now to You. The album was produced by Mario Caldato Jr. (perhaps most famous for assisting the Beastie Boys on their masterpiece Paul’s Boutique) and is due in stores September 17th, four days before the start of…autumn. Bummer.
