I (unfortunately) haven't come across Mason in any sort of commercial or TV show, but I think his music would be a really good fit for the latest Subaru ad campaign, which has already featured M. Ward & Sean Hayes (the musician, not the Will & Grace actor). I highly recommend checking out both of them if you aren't familiar with them.

Fully agreed. I really like having the physical album...I like being able to look at the artwork, and I feel like my CD collection looks a lot cooler without a bunch of burned CDs with sloppy Sharpie written on them.

Mason announced the tracklist via his facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/masonjennings.

"New album The Flood is available for pre-order on iTunes. Act fast, we've got some specials planned for you!"

What do you think the specials are?

Thanks for the info! I guess I'll just have to be patient...

Has there been any news on this album? For some reason I had Sept. 21 in my head as the date it was supposed to be released, but I can't find any sort of official word, aside from a few news articles from July.

I am really looking forward to this album...I hope it's not lost!

I am so excited for this album. Simple Life is one of my favorites, and I expect this one to be just as great.

I agree with most of the songs listed by previous posters, especially Joy and White. I would also really really dig 579 (Road to Oakland). I think that's one of his most beautiful songs.

Did anyone go to the show? What songs did he "dust off?"

It's "No light upon my feet, so much that I couldn't see"

I hadn't gotten that deep yet, but I definitely think you're on to something. I had been wondering about the prophet line myself, but what you said makes a lot of sense. After reading your interpretation, I think the song is a big-picture allegory for Muslim/Judeo-Christian relations over history. We all began as brothers, but different choices have led us to do awful things to each other.

The CD does have lyrics included, but it's out in my car. I'll check at lunch and get back to you.
