A couple of weeks ago, I posted up the first single and title track to the new record called Circuital from My Morning Jacket, which comes out on 31st May on ATO Records.
Today, they’ve put another track off of the record out there, entitled “Holdin’ On To Black Metal”. The band continues to become more and more unpredictable, and this falsetto-drenched number might make you either love them or hate them.
It’s being reported that front man Jim James said this to the rest of the band before they recorded the track:
“I want it to sound like we’re Cuban or Cambodian kids, and we’re wearing berets and we’re walking through an alley and we stumble upon this band, and it explodes into this crazy sing-along”
Whatever that means.
