"Holdin On To Black Metal" - new track from My Morning jacket

Download it free here
"Holdin On To Black Metal" - from My Morning Jacket's forthcoming album "Circuital"

My Morning Jacket, on their website, said the song was "inspired" by an old Thai pop song:

"The inspiration behind “Holdin On To Black Metal” comes from the song “E-Saew Tam Punha Huajai” by Kwan Jai & Kwan Jit Sriprajan that has been respectfully acknowledged and credited in the Circuital liner notes. The song appears on the amazing 'Siamese Soul: Thai Spectacular 1960s-80s Volume 2' compilation that is available to pick up here (and highly recommended): ..."

The two songs do sound remarkably similar, almost as if "Holdin On To Black Metal" were merely an English language cover of the Thai pop nugget. Very different from what I think of as "the My Morning Jacket sound", and very different even, from the first song we heard from the forthcoming album, the title song "Circuital" Download the song for free in exchange for your email on the band's site
