  • My Morning Jacket return with their seventh studio album, The Waterfall, on May 4th via ATO Records/Capitol Records. It’ll be the band’s first release since 2011’s Circuital, and the first of two new albums planned for this year. Jim James and friends have shared a video trailer for the album, featuring behind-the-scenes studio footage from Stinson Beach, California, and peeks at tracks from the new album. Check it out below.

  • Another long-awaited new album is the sophomore full-length from Alabama Shakes, and that release, titled Sound & Color, hits stores on April 21st on ATO Records. Today, the Southern soul band share the track “Future People.” Stream the fabulously funky sound below. [Consequence of Sound]

  • German composer Nils Frahm shares a new track today: the solo piano piece, “Wall,” is his first new music since 2013’s Spaces. In a press release, Frahm says he wrote it for International Piano Day, which falls on March 29th. “Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.” [Under the Radar]

  • Brooklyn producer Boots brought his beats and a mad light show to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. Watch the rising new star perform the track “I Run Roulette” off his Motorcycle Jesus EP. And check out KEXP’s TV Eye column to keep up with all the late night TV musical highlights. [Spin]
