Watch some of Tomorrow's Verse's favorite artists hit the promotional late-night television circuit.
1. Margo Price on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
Margo Price continues to promote her excellent new album, All American Made, finding her performing a blistering take of “A Little Pain” on Colbert’s show. Backed by a string section in addition to her talented band, Price sticks to vocal duties and absolutely nails the track with emotion and skill.
2. Erykah Badu on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
The always eclectic Erykah Badu brought a funky medley of “On & On” and a cover of Fela Kuti’s “Sorrow Tears and Blood” to The Tonight Show, backed by a massive horn section, full band, background singers and Questlove on drums. It’s an incredible performance that reminds us what makes Badu such a unique and powerful force.
3. Julien Baker on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
Songwriter Julien Baker’s late-night television debut happened on Colbert’s show this week, and was nothing short of stunning. A truly unique talent to feature, Baker’s slow-burning “Turn Out The Lights” is a gorgeous, spacious solo track that builds to explosive heights. A flawless performance of an excellent song, this is one you’ll simply have to watch to understand.
4. Anderson East on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
Prolific songwriter Anderson East stopped by Colbert’s show for a soulful performance of the infectious “Girlfriend.” Using a combination of horns, synthesizer and powerful vocals, the song is the perfect single for East, who never fails to impress.
5. The Tallest Man On Earth on a Swedish game show
Though technically not late-night television, this performance from folk master The Tallest Man On Earth is simply too great to pass on pasting. Taking place on a Swedish game show, the artist covers Adele’s “When We Were Young.” Accompanied by piano, background singers and a simplistic backing band, the passionate performance is an original, slightly dark take on the original.
6. Randy Newman on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Randy Newman stopped by The Tonight Show to perform two songs and speak with Jimmy Fallon. Performing album highlights “Short People” and “It’s A Jungle Out There,” the songs are classic Newman, and feature background vocalists. Watch both songs and the “piano-side chat” below.
