Watch: The Shins ‘Simple Song’ And ‘It’s Only Life’ Live On SNL

Written by Brayden Darke on March 12, 2012

The Shins have appeared on Saturday Night Live over the weekend. Jonah Hill hosted the show, introducing the tracks Simple Song and It’s Only Life off their upcoming new album, Port of Morrow, out at the end of the month.

Port Of Morrow will be released at the end of this month, and will be their first since 2007 release Wincing The Night Away.

Frontman vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, James Mercer, will release the album on his label Aural Apothecary, after the band left sub-pop in 2008.

The Shins performed with a new line-up, including Fruit Bats frontman Eric Johnson, Richard Swift, Joe Plummer, Yuuki Matthews and Jessica Dobson accompanying Mercer this time round.
