What’s a good question to ask during the Jim James Reddit AMA? How about asking him why he ever chose the lazy name of “Yim Yames” as his alter ego. In support of his new album, “Regions of Light and Sound of God,” My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James will do an AMA, or “Ask Me Anything,” on the popular news/cat photo/meme aggregator Reddit on Tuesday at noon EST.
The site is famous for its democratic approach, in which users vote on what stories—or questions, in the case of an AMA. This has led to some dicey fan encounters, as was the case in Woody Harleson’s AMA, where a fan confronted him about a lascivious encounter (allegedly) involving the actor at a high school dance.
“Regions of Light and Sound of God” will be released on Feb. 5, via ATO records. Listen to two songs from the album over at Jim James’ website.
