James Taylor– Listen to His Wonderful New Single, First Since 2002 “Today Today Today”


I’m just listening now to James Taylor’s first new album since 2002. It’s called “Before This World” and like anything by JT, it’s beautifully crafted. It’s also got very catchy songs sung by that unmistakeable voice. Taylor is unerring in his vocal approach, and his intonation always makes you think of log cabins, fires burning against a snowy sky. And that’s funny, because his best tours are during the summer at places like Tanglewood. Anyway, here’s “Today Today Today.” The album is released on June 16th. Sting is one of the featured guests singing harmony on the title track.
