Joanna Newsom Talks Husband Andy Samberg, Teaches Larry King to Play the Harp [WATCH]
Larry King had previously teased an episode of his where harp queen Joanna Newsom would teach him how to play the magnificent instrument, well, that episode has aired, featuring an interview where the artist talks about her actor/comedian husband Andy Samberg, and is now online for your viewing pleasure.
The webisode, which aired Monday night (Dec. 14) can now be viewed in full via Hulu. It's quite comical watching the 82-year-old attempting to strum the massive golden instrument, although it appears he's not half bad. King, as well as Newsom, appear to be pleased with the host's novice results.
During the interview segment, King asks her if her husband, Andy Samberg, understands her lyrics and vocals, or even likes the harp for that matter. Newsom also slammed Spotify once again, criticizing it for its unfair business model and how most record labels have a stake in the service, therefore they are not looking out for the best interests of the artists.
The folk singer/harpstress released her brand new LP Divers in October via Drag City. The album is not available for streaming, however, you can certainly pickup a copy from most major music retailers.
Of her music, the singer recently stated, "I feel like people in general would prefer to have their own experiences getting into the songs... The way the songs are written - the references and the double meanings, those sorts of things - for me, those give life to the music."
The multi-instrumentalist recently returned from a string of European tour dates and is currently in the midst of a U.S. tour in support of the new album. She will head to Australia for three dates in January of 2016 before returning to the U.S. for a West Coast leg of her Divers Tour.
