My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James performed “Complex” and other songs from the band’s 2021 self-titled album at Nashville’s RCA Studio A. The seven-song session will be released as a limited edition EP for Record Store Day Drops tomorrow, Saturday, June 18.

Captured by Danny Clinch, the recording session was supposed to include all of My Morning Jacket playing songs from their latest LP. James explained what led to him going solo for the session, writing:

“In late August 2021, we were set to record a full band live session at RCA Studio A when one of our band members tested positive for COVID. With a full film and audio crew set to record in this beautiful and historic studio, we didn’t want to let the moment go to waste so we decided to try out acoustic versions of songs from our new self-titled album.

“Every song you see or hear from this session was me giving it a go solo for the very first time with a wonderful audience consisting of our road crew as well as filmmaker Danny Clinch and his crew … We hope you enjoy these alternate universe versions!”

Live From RCA Studio A (Jim James Acoustic) will be limited to 5,000 copies and available at participating independent record stores. Watch Jim James perform My Morning Jacket’s “Complex” live at Nashville’s RCA Studio A below:
