Watch Jim James perform "A New Life" on Fallon

Jim James on Fallon

If you have ever seen My Morning Jacket in concert, you know Jim James is not your average live performer. As we can see from his appearance on last night's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, James has decided to carry that next-level approach into his solo performances.

What starts out as an intimate rendition of the MMJ frontman's Hot New Track-certified "A New Life" turns into a parade of backup musicians and the Roots bringing the solemn love ballad new life (no pun intended). Watch the playback below.
