James returns!

While the band James might not instantly register in your ear, I can almost guarantee that you've sung along with their mega-popular, widely covered song Laid. It was originally on the album of the same name back in 1993, and while the band were never to hit the charts with anything as catchy, they soldiered on for a while until calling it quits in 2001. The group reformed later in the 2000's, and are set to let loose their first release in the U.S. in quite some time, the two disc The Morning After The Night Before, as well as a string of tour dates that you can check out below. While I haven't heard any of the new music (some of it is available in the UK already...and Brits want to comment?), I'm eager to check out how the boys fare.

Here's an old b-side in the meantime.

James - Stolen Horse : I Know What I'm Here For Single (disc 2 )
