New Jim James Album & Drive By Truckers 7″

0

My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James releases Tribute To 2, a collection of cover songs on which he reinterprets songs made famous by a wide variety of artists – ranging from early 20th century standards by Ray Noble and Al Bowlly (“Midnight, the Stars and You,” “Love is the Sweetest Thing”) and 1960’s songs by Willie Nelson and Sonny & Cher to Emerson, Lake & Palmer’s 1970 breakthrough hit “Lucky Man” and 1990’s releases by Abbey Lincoln and Diane Izzo.

You catch the psychedelic visual for the lead track, a cover of The Beach Boys’ “I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times” below.

On December 15th, Drive-By Truckers will release The Perilous Night 7″, a double A-side single featuring a live version of American Band track “What It Means” recorded at Newport Folk Festival and a brand new track titled “The Perilous Night”, which frontman Patterson Hood wrote in the wake of the Charlottesville protests this fall. In an in-depth Q&A with Patterson Hood, Stereogumcalled it “a raucous barroom rocker with pessimistic lyrics expressing the frustration many of us have felt while watching so many Americans — including people we love — bend over backwards to justify the unjustifiable.”
