Rolling Stone reports that My Morning Jacket is back in Nashville recording their follow-up to 2008's Evil Urges!
They have performed some of their new material live the past year, including "Friends Again."
I have been living on the John Prine tribute album Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows that MMJ contributed to. John Prine welcomed James as well as other contributors to that album on stage with him for his set at the Newport Folk Festival last week. Listen to it here (Thanks to NPR.org!)
Yim Yames also performed an intimate solo set (with some help from Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore) Listen to that set, in full, here.
The Yim Yames Newport Folk Fest set list:
Look At You
Tonight I Want To Celebrate With You
Summer Never Ends (John Callahan, to whom James dedicated the show to)
It Beats 4 U
Bring Me Li'l Water Sylvie (Leadbelly)
Morning Of My Life (Bee Gees)
Where To Begin
Smokin’ From Shootin' (with Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore)
