Music Video Of The Day: Jim James 'I Want A New Life'

By Samantha Abernethy in Arts & Entertainment on Apr 12, 2013 10:40PM

My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James released his debut effort Regions Of Light And Sound Of God, and his solo tour is stopping through Chicago at the Vic Theatre on Saturday, April 20. Yes, stoner MMJ fans. We get it. Tickets are still on sale.

"I Want a New Life" is James' second single off the album. It's a nice, romantic song, but like most things Jim James does, things in the video get weird. Adorably weird. Enjoy.

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact Samantha Abernethy at
