Believe it or not, but in their nearly 20 years of existence My Morning Jacket have never once appeared on daytime television. That changed yesterday when Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Jim James & co. onto her show to perform “Big Decisions”, a standout track off their excellent new album, The Waterfall.
DeGeneres, who’s been on a roll lately in terms of musical guests (see: The War on Drugs, Courtney Barnett, Sharon Van Etten), says she loves the Kentucky outfit and we’d be inclined to agree. Plus, who else could possibly pull off that awesome hat/blazer combo James has going on? The answer is: no one. Replay the performance below.
The Waterfall is out now via ATO/Capitol Records. My Morning Jacket’s also mapped out an extensive world tour that stretches into October.
