The phenomenal weather seen Saturday at the inaugural All Points West Festival didn't carry over to the third and final day of the fest, as dark storm clouds rolled in and cast a dreary shadow over New Jersey's Liberty State Park. Jack Johnson, Ben Harper and Trey Anastasio led the bill.
Fans of Jack Johnson can get a taste of the singer/songwriter's forthcoming effort, "Sleep Through the Static," via its single "If I Had Eyes." The track became available yesterday (Dec. 13) via iTunes. Shoppers who pre-order the album will receive the song for free.
Jack Johnson has started recording his fifth full-length album, which he plans to release in early 2008. The surf filmmaker-turned-troubadour is hunkered down in the still-being-completed studios at his label, Brushfire Records', new, eco-friendly headquarters in Los Angeles.
