Last.fm Presents: James Mercer Of The Shins


A big week coming up for [lastfm]James Mercer [/lastfm]and [lastfm]The Shins [/lastfm]as they get set to release the long-awaited fourth album Port Of Morrow on Tuesday March 20th. Also that night, the band will hit the stage for one of our exclusive Live on Letterman webcasts at 9pm (ET). You’ll be able to watch it on CBS.com. James took some time out of his busy schedule promoting and setting up the release of this album to stop by our new studio for a special four-song performance & interview. The album is being put out on Mercer’s label Aural Apothecary, distributed by Columbia Records. Like I said, it’s a long-awaited album, as it has been just over five-years since the release of Wincing This Night Away. It’s co-produced along with Greg Kurstin. Click away, sit back and enjoy this captivating Last.fm Presents session.
