Jack’s new song “Fragments” is from the film, The Smog Of The Sea, a documentary that provides a new perspective on the once pristine oceans of the world, while making an artful call to action for rethinking single-use plastic. Directed by Peabody Award-winning and Emmy-nominated filmmaker Ian Cheney (King Corn, The City Dark, The Search for General Tso), The Smog Of The Sea is available to stream for a limited time starting today via, www.thesmogofthesea.com.
Curbing the use of single-use plastic has been at the forefront of Jack’s work for over a decade. Since 2005, Jack and his touring crew have implemented a plastic free backstage and since 2007 all shows have offered fans free water through water-refill stations. In 2014, Jack successfully helped launch a Reusable Pint Program at the Santa Barbara Bowl, which has since inspired venues across the country to follow suit, including the Les Schwab Amphitheatre in Bend, OR, and all venues owned by Live Nation. This summer, more venues will adopt a Reusable Pint Program, which provides fans with an alternative to disposable plastic cups. Fans who purchase this reusable stainless steel cup at venue concessions will receive a discount on all beverage refill purchases for the life of the cup.
In addition to these plastic free initiatives, Jack and his production team, alongside Reverb, will continue to pave the way in green touring practices with extensive sustainability programs at every show. Visit www.jackjohnson.com/greening to learn more.

Our friend Neil Halstead has released several beautiful solo records over the years, 2 of which – Oh Mighty Engine, and Palindrome Hunches – we were fortunate enough to put out. If you’ve not heard them, you are really missing out.
His band Slowdive reformed last year and played a lot of festivals and a notably great show here in Los Angeles. They are a different animal than Neil’s solo work and his work in Mojave 3, but equally amazing. We were pretty excited to take a listen to this new track, looks like they are due to release a new album on Dead Oceans this year…

Jack is celebrating World Oceans Day in New York! World Oceans Day is a global event that inspires people to help create healthier oceans for a healthy planet. Jack is participating in the celebrations at the United Nations, and will be joining friends from the Polynesian Voyaging Society to honor their Malama Honua sail across the world’s oceans.
This morning, Jack had the honor of attending a ceremony with the U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Two years ago in Samoa, Ban Ki-moon came aboard the Hokule’a and offered the gift of a message in a bottle, a handwritten note pledging to take action and protect the world’s oceans. Along her sail, the Hokulea Crew has collected 40 pledges from around the world and will return the bottle to the Secretary-General in honor of World Oceans Day.
Jack had a great time performing with Paula Fuga and his amazing Turnaround Arts students at Waianae Elementary School and Kamaile Academy. Check out this awesome video celebrating the Power of the Arts in Schools.
In celebration of Earth Month, last week Pivot TV premiered “All At Once: On The Road,” a documentary following Jack’s 2014 North American west coast tour and highlighting his music, lifestyle, and greening initiatives.
If you missed the film premiere on Pivot TV, the film is now available for sale or rent exclusively on iTunes.
The film highlights the Johnson‘s Kokua Hawaii Foundation, the work of the All At Once campaign, and several key non-profit partners and businesses focusing on plastic free initiatives and sustainable local food systems. Tune in to see how Jack and his team strive to create as little impact on the Earth as possible, from traveling on biodiesel-powered buses, to sourcing organic and locally grown meals, to carefully disposing of waste along the way.
Get a first-hand look at the day-to-day life of the band on tour, including incredible performance footage of Jack on stage at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre with Animal Liberation Orchestra, the Greek Theater in Berkeley with Bahamas, the iconic The Gorge Amphitheatre with Eddie Vedder, special guest appearances by surfer and environmentalist Rob Machado, and surfer Kelly Slater at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The goal of the tour and this documentary is to inspire people to get involved, make the right choices, and enjoy the music along the way.
