Fleet Foxes played Fallon, Justin Vernon does tonight (performance and interview?) +++ “Bon Iver” lyrics & more
by Andrew Sacher
Fleet Foxes appeared on Fallon on Friday (5/20) playing “Sim Sala Bim” off their incredible new album Helplessness Blues. Watch it below. They’ll finish up their tour at the end of this month overseas in Europe.
As mentioned, Bon Iver plays the late night show tonight (5/23) in support of his long awaited sophomore album Bon Iver (out 6/21 via Jagjaguwar). The album, though crafted in a much different manner from the raw loneliness of For Emma, Forever Ago, is easily as compelling. While not abandoning the folksy quality of the debut, Bon Iver adds art pop sensibilities that are, at times, not too unlike the Bon Iver-covering Peter Gabriel. Read all the new lyrics at BonIver.org.
What will Justin play on Fallon tonight? Well, according to a tweet it will be a cover (or covers), and some “good old fashioned ‘medley'” with Phil Cook of Megafaun. Questlove adds that he “got Bon Iver/Justin realrealreal good for his walkon song on [Late Night] tonight #musicactsgettingcouchtime!!!!” I think that means Justin is being interviewed too. Stay tuned.
