Like Gorillaz did a few days before, My Morning Jacket treated the Ed Sullivan Theater audience to a nearly hour-long set of music on Tuesday for The Late Show’s Live On Letterman webcast. As you can see below, they took up a lot of room on the stage, decorating it with a bear and a sarape-wearing donkey. They played tracks from across their discography, but settled on “The Way That He Sings,” from 2001’s At Dawn, for the actual broadcast.
Last night the band visited Late Night to do “Wordless Chorus” with The Roots (Jim James recently appeared in The Roots’s video for “Dear God 2.0“). “Wordless Chorus” is from 2005’s Z. Watch:
My Morning Jacket are going through a bunch of old material to promote their five-night residency at New York’s Terminal 5. Starting 10/18 they’ll play one album each night, in chronological order.
