Jamey Johnson’s concept album due out this summer
Jamey Johnson fans only have to hold their breath a little bit longer, as news of a new album finally surfaces! Jamey describes his new concept album as a “black album” and a “white album.” Concept albums usually revolve around some kind of musical, narrative, or lyrical theme.
“There will be more explanations inside the album jackets as to why it is done this way. But basically it is a little tale that revolves around a yin yang. As it gets further along you see how the opening situation evolves into some of these other situations. Each song … affects the next, or kind of sets up the next.”-gactv.com
Still unsure whether the project will be come out as a single two-disc album, two simultaneously released CD’s, or a pair of releases staggered several months apart. Jamie goes on to say:
“It gets dark and dismal [on the black album] and then it shows how on the white album everything gets better and better until it can’t get any better,” he said. “It just keeps going full circle. Each album bleeds into the other without stopping, and so if you put both albums on and hit the repeat button they play in perpetuity. They never stop.”
