Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Written, performed and produced entirely by Gary Louris (The Jayhawks) himself, Jump For Joy is The Jayhawks founder's first solo release since 2008's Vagabonds and features cover art illustrated by his son, Henry Louris.

The breezy debut single "New Normal" reminds us to live in the present and enjoy each moment we have on this earth. "The oldest recording of the bunch," Louris says of the song. "I made this down in my basement studio in Minneapolis in the first decade of the new millennium. I was still learning the art of the digital studio. It is a dip of the toe into that world and is pretty rudimentary, and yet it has that touch of magic. The sounds just work and I wouldn't know how to recreate this if I tried. The highlights for me are the strange vocoder sounds I got, and the crazy solo which was me channeling Robert Fripp. It's a sloppy electronic melange. Lyrically, it's my view on the world and how only when we 'stand still, watch time passing around you' can one truly be here now."
