My Morning Jacket Played 3 New Songs And Covered 4 Classics With The War On Drugs’ Frontman At One Big Holiday ’15

My Morning Jacket played their first shows in over a year at this year’s One Big Holiday, their own music festival that takes place in Mexico. (Here’s our report from last year.) Over the course of three nights, the band debuted three new songs that fans are calling “Big D,” “Compound,” and “Only Memories.” They also played a bunch of covers, including Hall & Oates’ “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do),” Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire,” Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You,” the Cars’ “Drive,” Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” Willie Nelson’s “Luckenbach Texas,” Elton John’s “Benny And The Jets,” and two Bob Marley tracks. During their shows, they were joined on stage by Conor Oberst, War On Drugs frontman Adam Granduciel, Sylvan Esso vocalist Amelia Meath, Band Of Horses’ Ben Bridwell, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and a few more special guests. Check out some videos from the shows and see the setlists below.
