On the eve of his debut solo album release, Jim James and his solo band were joined by The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to perform "A New Life".

This music is superb... James is entering a Bruce Springsteen territory here, with the old '50s era rock and roll beat, wailing horn, and glockenspiel supporting strong and simple vocal melody lines.  He doesn't have a great voice, but he knows how to use what he has.  The stage production is spectacular, with the song arrangement breaking into sections with different arrangements of musicians.  Enjoy!
