Along with the Beatles and Genesis and the Eagles, Radiohead are the rare band where the drummer can make a respectable go of it as a solo singer-songwriter. Radiohead skin-basher Philip Selway just released Weatherhouse, his second album of lovely, softhearted solo songs. And last night, he was the musical guest on The Tonight Show, where he neglected his drum set for a piano. Performing “It Will End In Tears,” Selway had an unlikely backing band: ’60s-soul revivalists the Dap-Kings, better known for backing up Sharon Jones and Amy Winehouse. They sounded awesome behind him, especially as the song hit its climax. Watch it below.
Weatherhouse is out now on Bella Union.
