MMJ Live Vol. 3: Bonnaroo 2004 captures one of the most iconic sets in both My Morning Jacket and Bonnaroo history, a now-legendary performance that saw ominous dark clouds roll in just as the band took the stage. Though torrential rain quickly followed, the band proceeded to unleash a landmark run through such classics as “Mahgeetah,” “Lowdown,” “Cobra,” and “One Big Holiday,” the latter of which premieres today at all DSPs and streaming services.

“It seems like only yesterday we were playing in the hot n sweaty rain-soaked Thunderdome down at the ol roo…but WOW it’s been nearly 20 years!” Jim James exclaims. “We are so excited to revisit and share this pivotal moment for the band and beautiful moment in time with the universe with you all again!”
