Earlier this month, My Morning Jacket debuted a new song called “Big D” at One Big Holiday, the band’s second annual music festival at Riviera Maya in Mérida, Mexico. Now, its final studio version — officially titled “Big Decisions” — has arrived.
A gorgeous, infectious rocker, it’s flush with soaring hooks and jaunty piano. Frontman Jim James’ signature golden croon is on full display — both his upper and lower register! — and boy, it’s a powerful instrument in and of itself. Update: The single prematurely leaked and has been removed. Look for it next week.
