One gem gleaned from the conversation is that the group plans to release a new album, though the timeline is still undecided.Watch Pro-Shot Selections From Jim James’ Performance On ‘A Prairie Home Companion’During the recording process for their last album, 2015’s The Waterfall, the band previously acknowledged that they created enough music to fill two albums. When asked about what happened to this lost music from the recording session, James acknowledged that initially, it got lost in the fray of touring and Jim James’ solo work, noting, “It’s almost like the other record kind of got forgotten or shelved for a minute.” However, James elaborates that after recently relistening to the rough mixes of those tracks, the singer “was really getting into them again,” eventually revealing “I feel like that’s something that will definitely come out. I don’t know if it will be called Behind the Waterfall or something related, but it still exists. It just needs to be mixed.”Watch Jim James’ Emotional Tribute To Allen Toussaint In New OrleansIn the same article, Jim James similarly reveals that while the band has “been busy with their family,” the group hasn’t “had any time to learn new stuff yet,” though they remain hopeful that their schedules will allow them too soon.
