Jesu / Sun Kil Moon is a collaborative studio album by American indie folk act Sun Kil Moon and British experimental act Jesu, released January 21, 2016 on Caldo Verde Records and Rough Trade. The album also features guests Will Oldham aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, members of Low, Rachel Goswell of Slowdive and Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse. Jesu and Sun Kil Moon including drummer Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth will play six shows in February and March 2016 to support the album.
The collaborative album was first hinted at in an interview with Mark Kozelek in the January 2015 issue of Uncut magazine and officially announced on April 27, 2015 by Jesu front man Justin Broadrick via Twitter. In the tweet Broadrick says: "A lot of questions about a new Jesu record, I've been working on it for some time, it's a collaboration LP between Sun Kil Moon and Jesu."
The album has come from the long-standing relationship between Broadrick and Sun Kil Moon front man Mark Kozelek. Kozelek first approached Broadrick in 2007, about a release through his label, after being impressed by a live performance in San Francisco. In 2009 Jesu released Opiate Sun through Caldo Verde Records (a record label owned by Kozelek) and later the same year Broadrick interviewed Kozelek for the Caldo Verde website. In 2013, Kozelek covered Broadrick's band Godflesh's song "Like Rats" and in 2014 directly referenced Broadrick and Godflesh in "The Possum"; the opening track from Sun Kil Moon's 2015 album Universal Themes.
On July 28 an official tracklist and release date was revealed via sunkilmoon.com. On September 12 a 10th song was added to the tracklist, "Beautiful You". On October 5 the track "America's Most Wanted Mark Kozelek and John Dillinger" was available for streaming then later on in the month on October 21 the track "Exodus" was available for streaming, pre-orders of the album's CDs were enabled, and Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse was added to the album's guesting musicians. On January 15, a week before the albums official January 22 release date, the project was available to stream in full on the Sun Kil Moon website.
