Jack Johnson’s first full-length release in five years was produced by Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Perfume Genius, Jim James) and recorded at the legendary Sound City and EastWest studios in Los Angeles along with his own studio in Hawaii.
The creation process of Meet The Moonlight marks a major artistic milestone from Jack Johnson's past work, taking shape from a one-on-one collaboration with producer Blake Mills, whose contributions included everything from fretless guitar to Moog synth to steel drums, and unveiled an intimate and highly experimental process that involved Johnson’s elegantly stripped-back arrangements with enchanting sonic details.
“When Blake and I first got in touch we’d send each other playlists, and over time we realized we were drawn to music that sounds effortless despite all the effort put into making it,” says Johnson. “After a while we got a language together and I gained a trust in him that allowed me to let go, push outside my comfort zone, and get to a sound I really loved.”
For Earth Day 2022, Johnson performed an intimate set on the Kōkua Learning Farm, an educational and agricultural destination located in the heart of Haleʻiwa, Hawaiʻi. The farm is part of the latest project of Johnson’s Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation which is establishing agricultural, educational, and retail activities that promote local food, waste reduction, and environmental stewardship.
Continuing a commitment to support sustainability and local community projects, all net proceeds earned through Platinum and Premium ticketing programs on his current tour will be donated to the Johnson Ohana Foundation to support All At Once non-profit partners at each concert. In addition, $2 from every ticket will support the environment, with half being directed to carbon offset projects and the other half to support the All At Once partners and their environmental projects, plastic free initiatives, and food security efforts.
