Jack Johnson's 'From Here To Now To You' Tops Billboard Chart

Jack Johnson's sixth studio album, 'From Here To Now To You' is #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, Johnson's fourth chart toping album to date, with 117k sold. The album has also debuted at #1 in Canada. The album was previewed a week before release on iTunes, where the full album stream was accompanied, for the first time ever, by an album length video companion piece, directed by Grammy winning director Emmett Malloy. Johnson marked the release with a sold out European and North American tour of historical theaters as well as appearances at the iTunes festival, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the Colbert Reportand at Farm Aid with Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Cougar Mellancamp and Dave Matthews.

'From Here To Now To You', is not only #1 on the album charts it is also paving the way for responsible CD production and packaging. The album was recorded using 100% solar energy; printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper, and carries the 1% For The Planet logo.

For his sold out fall tour of historical theaters, Johnson and his production team, alongside Reverb, continues to pave the way in green touring practices and community engagement initiatives. Tour vehicles will be fueled by domestic sustainable biodiesel wherever possible, concertgoers will be offered mass transportation options, waste reduction measures will be expanded and single-use disposable water bottles will continue to be eliminated backstage. In addition the tour will source local food from "farm to stage", produce and offer eco-friendly merchandise, provide free water refill stations and invest in community based carbon offset projects. As with all of his tours since 2008, Johnson will donate 100% of his tour profits to charity.
