(Big and Bright) Jack Johnson announces a new music video to accompany "Traffic In The Sky (Lee "Scratch" Perry Dub)," lead track and one of two Lee "Scratch" Perry dub remixes included in Johnson's upcoming summer album, In Between Dub. The new video features never before seen Lee "Scratch" Perry footage from the making of studio sessions in Jamaica, along with animation from Greatwork.

"It's exciting to hear Lee "Scratch" Perry's interpretation of my song, and then to see Greatwork's visual interpretation of our collaboration" said Johnson. Johnson has also released a second album track, a remix of his classic hit "Better Together," from Nightmares on Wax. Nightmares On Wax, Warp Records' longest serving signing, has been at the forefront of contemporary music for over 30 years, creating a unique blend of dub, electronica, jazz, hip-hop, funk, soul and techno.

In Between Dub, a hand-selected collection of some of Johnson's most beloved songs over an incredible two-decade career, features reimagined tracks by some of Reggae's most influential names in the genre lending their talent to a collaborative compilation of dub remixes. Out June 2nd through Brushfire and Republic Records, In Between Dub is soon to be this summer's iconic soundtrack.

Bookending his summer tour, Johnson and his band will headline two festival performances; first on May 6 at SunFest in West Palm Beach, Florida and concluding at the Oceans Calling Music Festival in Ocean City, Maryland on September 29.

Johnson will also bring his revered Meet The Moonlight Tour to Europe this summer.
