Three days before their their fourth album Port of Morrow streams on iTunes, the Shins appeared on Saturday Night Live to hype up and perform a few tracks. We've already seen the video for "Simple Song" and got a preview of "September," but check out the group performing "Simple" and the more laid-back "It's Only Life" below. Port of Morrow, scheduled for release on March 20, is the band's first album since 2007's Wincing the Night Away and first on frontman James Mercer's Aural Apothecary label.
