The M&M’s Featuring John Medeski, Stanton Moore, Robert Mercurio, & Papa Mali Release New Single “Parachute” [Listen]


Funk quartet powerhouse The M&M’s—comprised of keyboardist John Medeski, drummer Stanton Moore, bassist Robert Mercurio, and guitarist Papa Mali—have shared a new track titled, “Parachute”, which premiered on Monday via Relix.

The new tune written by Papa Mali includes beautifully layered, lush vocal work, as well as the additional accompaniment of a string section.

“We personally love the sentiment and vibe we captured,” The M&M’s explained to Relix. “We are so excited to get together not only on the stage but working together as a group in the studio.”

Due to each members’ busy regular touring schedules, The M&M’s perform an extremely limited amount of live shows. With only one currently scheduled tour date, Medeski, Moore, Mercurio, and Mali will reconnect for a special late-night performance during New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival at Tipitina’s on Friday, April 26th (technically early a.m. Saturday). As you’ve surely heard by now, Moore, Mercurio and their Galactic bandmates recently finalized a deal to purchase Tipitina’s—a club they’ve been visiting as both patrons and performers for nearly three decades.
