My Morning Jacket Cover Gil Scott-Heron

Last week, My Morning Jacket played MSG and in the midst of their epic sprawl of a live show, the band unwrapped covers of Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Bottle” and Bing Crosby’s “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” a song they also handled on their latest iTunes Session EP. Band Of Horses, the opener, filled in as support for the latter. Check the live videos out down below.

“The Bottle”

“I’ll Be Home For Christmas”

The My Morning Jacket iTunes Session EP is out now on iTunes. We previously posted a track from that affair, “When The Bells Start Ringing.”
