Today My Morning Jacket announced that it will reissue 2003's It Still Moves on May 27 via ATO Records. The album is remixed and remastered as a special deluxe package with new artwork and exclusive photos. It includes 13 previously unreleased b-sides and demos on 4 x LP 180 gram vinyl and a 2 CD set. Thanks to mxing Kevin Ratterman, a longtime friend of the band, frontman Jim James was able to go back to revisit the tracks. It was also remastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering.

Jim James says the follow about the reissue: "Everybody can relate to something they've done in their life where you didn't know it at the time, but you were rushed through finishing it."

He blames the band's busy touring schedule as a release he feels it was unfinished. When ATO asked James about reissuing the album as part of their 15th anniversary he jumped at the opportunity. In addition to established favorites like "One Big Holiday," the album also features acoustic demos that James originally recorded. "I feel lucky to have had so many songs that feel like there are chances to go in other directions," James said. This is the stuff that is just James in his bedroom, working the idea out. "It definitely feels more lonely," he says. "Maybe more haunting."

After It Still Moves, My Morning Jacket reconfigured themselves, with James and the unstoppable rhythm section of bassist Tom Blankenship and drummer Patrick Hallahan now joined by keyboardist Bo Koster and guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Carl Broemel. They had perfected a version of themselves here, and the only way forward was to dream it up again in some new form.
