We’ve got Jack Johnson


World famous North Shore of Oahu singer/songwriter Jack Johnson’s fifth CD Sleep Through the Static goes on sale Feb. 5.

It’s the follow-up to Johnson’s chart-topping 2006 soundtrack for the animated featureCurious George and his two-million-plus-selling 2005 CD In Between Dreams.

But do the new tunes on Static match up with the signature low-key surf-folk charm Johnson displayed on In Between Dreams and his 2001 debut Brushfire Fairytales? Has Johnson switched from love songs and backyard jams to thrash metal?

Drop by Hawaiimagazine.com on Friday (Feb. 1) and you’ll find my advance mini-review of Jack’s much-anticipated new disc.

Until then, enjoy this video clip of Sleep Through the Static’s first single, “If I Had Eyes.”

And tell us if you’re anxious to hear Jack’s new CD.
