Jim James is apparently treating the release today of his solo debut with an air of formality, given the coat and tie the My Morning Jacket frontman wore last night to perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. It was a fitting look for "A New Life." The gospel-laced tune started buttoned-down, and blossomed as James sang in clear, melodious tones while members of the Roots built the song from spare beginnings to a joyous, lushly orchestrated burst of instruments, including strings, horns and percussion. The song is from Regions of Light and Sound of God.
