Kula Shaker had a huge hit with its 1996 debut album, K, which went double platinum in the U.K. The band's music was profoundly affected by frontman Crispian Mills' travels in India. Kula Shaker's second album, Peasants, Pigs & Astronauts, was not as successful, and the band went on hiatus from 1999 to 2004. Now, 20 years after K, comes a companion album, K 2.0, filled with the psychedelic spirituality of the still-evolving band.

In this session, hear the band's performance and David Dye's interview with original members Mills and Paul Winterhart. Get a look inside the studio in the performance video of "Let Love Be (With U)," below.
