Listen to the stream.

As lead singer of My Morning Jacket, James specializes in letting his gigantic voice ring out past the rafters in songs that boom and blare. But on his first solo album, he turns inward and recasts himself as a lost wanderer in search of redemption and comfort. Hear Jim James perform as part of the 2013 Newport Folk Festival.
