Jim James has shared a new song called “Here in Spirit,” written after attending a Los Angeles rally following the Pulse nightclub shootings in Orlando. The My Morning Jacket frontman says “the song is about speaking out and trying to be there for people in spirit even if you can’t be at every rally and battle. We have such a duty to speak out for equality and for each other.”
“Here in Spirit” serves as the lead single to the upcoming album Eternally Even, due out Nov. 4th on ATO/Capitol Records. It was co-produced by Jim James and Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Dawes, Conor Oberst). Hear it below.
