The song “Wonderful(The Way I Feel)” was originally written by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James for Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem to perform in the last released Muppets film and tour, but was left unused. James said: “So now, twice, Muppet glory has been within my grasp…it’s pretty heartbreaking, but it did propel us just to kick into high gear and finish our own record.” The record Circuital was released last May as MMJ’s sixth album.
Fresh from their Live on Letterman appearance Trampled by Turtles have been breaking the boundaries that typical bluegrass bands face with their ‘crossover’ success. Continuing on that path, the band has recorded a very sweet take on MMJ’s “Wonderful (The Way I Feel)” . Have a listen and watch the video below recorded in a hotel room in upstate New York on July 21st 2012. (via HearYa)
