MMJ bust out!!

It is rumored that My Morning Jacket is recording new songs for its sixth album and the proof is in the pudding, as they busted out a new one, "Friends Again," during their current tour with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (MMJ lead singer Jim James collaborated with them for a recent LP).

It's a pretty kick ass rock song. Bright and loose with a vintage melody to it that immediately reminded me of "D'yer Maker" (or Jamaica) by Led Zeppelin for reasons probably beyond the obvious.

Here "Friends Again" here

MMJ are slated to play Sasquatch Festival at the end of May, and Mile High Festival (Colorado) in August, before playing in support of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers in late August (not when Petty rolls into SPAC, however. We get CSN instead ... I've already got tickets).
