Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard released her first-ever solo album, Jaime, last week. On Thursday, she promoted her stunning debut LP with an appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Draped in a glimmering sequined top, Howard delivered a soulful, resplendent rendition of lead single “Stay High”. Not unlike her New York City concert this past Tuesday, her charisma, soul, and energy registered almost just as loud, if not louder, than her own powerhouse vocals.
Replay the performance below.
In our review of her new album, Consequence of Sound contributor Lucy Shanker described Howard’s “irresistible draw and raspy growl” as “revolutionary,” adding, “With Jaime, Howard proves what many of us already speculated: The magic behind Alabama Shakes was Brittany Howard.” If you haven’t yet, stream the record in full here.
