A little rain couldn't put a damper on Grace Potter's set at this year's Mountain Jam Festival on Friday night, where she debuted a couple new songs: "Delirious" and "Empty Heart." Watch "Delirious" above, via the festival's YouTube.
She's dropped the name of her backing band, "The Nocturnals," recently, and this group is a little different than the one she toured with extensively in 2013. After a quiet 2014, Potter's husband Matt Burr (drums) and Benny Yurco (guitar) are still kicking out the jams, but with a cast of musicians that includes a new bass player, percussionist, organist, and keyboardist. On social media, Potter called the group "my Magical Midnight Roadshow" when it was announced they would be opening for The Rolling Stones. She explained more in an interview with Diffuser.
Grace and her band give a high spirited performance of the new track. "Delirious" has a feel good dance beat that's complimented with high energy guitar playing and spirited percussion. Halfway through the song, Grace puts down her Flying V guitar to vocally push the song to another level. This is like a cross between a spacey Led Zeppelin rocker with a latin-infused disco party anthem.
"Delirious" will be on Grace's upcoming album, Midnight, which will be released on August 14th via Hollywood Records. The album's first single, "Alive Tonight," was released earlier this year and also played at Mountain Jam.
