My Morning Jackets has more 'Evil Urges'

My Morning Jacket's Evil Urges is its fifth studio album. It was released by ATO Records on June 10, 2008. Writing began in Colorado, while recording was done in Manhattan.

Singer and lead songwriter Jim James said that the band wanted to get away from "normal rock and roll sounds" and emulate more of the band's live sound

A number of the songs were previewed at the 2008 South by Southwest music festival. My Morning Jacket played "I'm Amazed" and "Evil Urges" on NBC's Saturday Night Live on May 10, 2008.

At the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in June 2008, the band played a near four hour set, playing all songs on the album except "Look At You" and "Remnants".
