Jack Johnson released his seventh studio album All The Light Above It Too in the Fall of 2017. The record features the singles "My Mind Is for Sale", "Sunsets for Somebody Else", "You Can't Control It" and "Big Sur". This was Johnson's first album in four years.
Several songs on the album were inspired by the 2016 Presidential election, focusing on people's ability to rise above the ignorance and hate that were dominating international headlines at the time. There is a message of hope throughout the record, a resilience to stay connected and inspired.
