MUSIC NEWS - With My Morning Jacket beginning to work on material for a new album, they are making their limited collaborations and live appearances count in a big way. Next Friday, October 11th the band will be performing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and will be joined on-stage by Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes and Merrill Garbus of tUne-yArDs in honor of their contribution to Red Hot + Fela.
An album of Fela Kuti compositions, Red Hot + Fela hopes to raise AIDS awareness, and all proceeds from the album will go towards that cause. My Morning Jacket, along with Garbus and Howard, recorded the track “Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake Am” for the album. In addition, Jim James gave Indaba members the opportunity to remix the song 'State of the Art (A.E.I.O.U)' from his critically acclaimed solo album Regions of Light and Sound of God. The winner is titled "State of the Art (A.E.I.O.U.) (Robot Toast Remix)", included in the A.E.I.O.U.R.E.M.I.X.E.S. EP (alongside remixes by Thom of Alt-J and Chris Funk), available on October 8th exclusively through Spotify.
Following My Morning Jacket’s Fallon performance on Saturday the 12th, the band will journey to Times Square in NYC to headline a free concert as a part of CBGB Festival 2013. Live music & DJs will perform from multiple outdoor stages on Broadway while interactive installations including a music equipment expo, a skateboard half-pipe, rock climbing, a record fair, and silent disco and dozens of other attractions will fill Times Square to entertain people of all ages.
And remember, coming this January 26-30th 2014 is My Morning Jacket’s One Big Holiday, a tropical
