Jim James on Fallon

Today, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James releases Regions Of Light And Sound Of God, his first-ever proper solo album. And last night, he appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to pimp said album. In a beautifully staged performance, he sang the album’s elegantly floating single “A New Life” with the Roots, a small orchestra, and a trio of marching-band drummers backing him up. Give this guy credit for knowing how to make a late-night TV performance feel like an event, and watch it below.

Regions Of Light And Sound Of God is out now on ATO, and James will be back on Fallon tonight to sit in with the Roots all night.

  1. This song is going to be every newlyweds’ first dance for the next 20000 years

  2. 100 times better than anything on the MBV album.

  3. US only? Damn.

  4. The tour for this album should take the form of parades down every main street in America.
