Watch: The New Pornographers’ rousing performance on Letterman

on September 04, 2014, 8:05am

The New Pornographers are back to their old, sunny ways with their latest release, Brill Bruisers. The band’s first record in four years shows off a vibrant side of the indie supergroup we haven’t seen since 2005’s Twin Cinema. Aside for the quality of the music, it makes for a perfect album to showcase on late night TV.

Last night, AC Newman, Neko Case, and The New Pornos appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman to deliver a rousing performance of the album’s title track. “Wait, what happened to the Old Pornographers?” Letterman quipped.

Watch the replay below.

Neko’s shirt “thank you Cyril” was for Cyril Barrett a songwriter who passed away on Monday. He was a great friend to us all.
