Jack Johnson announces U.S. tour and talks forthcoming new album

'Better Together' hitmaker Jack Johnson has revealed that he's currently putting the finishing touches to a brand new (and as of yet untitled) album that he hopes to release this summer. 

The musician isn't one to shy away from a challenge and is playing every instrument himself on this recording, telling Rolling Stone that it's going really well so far:

"All these songs started coming together, and I decided basically a week or two ago that I was going to try to put them all together for a record. It's cruise control when you've got a really good rhythm section, cause they always make you sound good. I'll start layering things a lot, then listen back, think, 'I sound like an amateur,' pull it back off. The songs end up really stripped down."

Jack Johnson has also scored a new documentary, 'The Smog of the Sea', detailing the destructive effects of plastic pollution on the world's oceans and this 30-minute film is available to stream online
