While her husband Andy Samberg has been keeping busy with Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Joanna Newsom has begun making TV appearances herself in support of her latest album Divers, appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert for a moving performance of her single "Leaving The City."
Her performance on The Late Show followed a sold-out show at Brooklyn's Kings Theatre Monday night (Dec. 7), backed by her full touring band. Newsom had previously appeared on the show nearly five years to the day, back when David Letterman was the host, just after her last studio album Have One On Me was released. "Leaving The City," which she had previously performed on Later... with Jools Holland, is one of her new album's most majestic tracks, and her ability to perfect it in a live setting is practically unmatched.
The harp-wielding folk artist has only just begun her North American tour in support of Divers, which will span numerous major cities across the U.S. It was also recently revealed by Larry King, who was emphatic towards the fact that Newsom was teaching him how to play the harp, that she would be appearing on Larry King Now for an interview, which according to a press release, will air on December 14th.
Tickets for Newsom's tour, which was recently expanded to include the West Coast, are currently on sale. Divers is also out now via Drag City, but if you're looking to stream it via Spotify or Apple Music, you'll be hard-pressed to do so as the singer/songwriter has been an open opponent to music streaming platforms, even going as far as comparing them to a "rotten banana."
