Tobias Jesso Jr. won our hearts this year with the fragile piano ballad “True Love.” With his anticipated debut album still months down the road, he made his live debut at the Paris edition of the Pitchfork Festival last weekend. One industrious fan captured footage of Jesso performing his breakthrough song. (Would it have killed him to upload some unreleased tracks too?) Anyway, this footage suggests that seeing Jesso will be as tender and intimate an experience as listening to his recordings. Watch below.
Jesso’s debut album is out next year and will feature production by Girls’ Chet J.R. White, the Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, the New Pornographers’ John Collins, and Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Sky Ferreira). It will almost certainly be awesome.
