The Irish balladeer Damien Rice just made his big return with My Beautiful Faded Fantasy, his first album in eight years. And last night on Letterman, Rice served as musical guest, playing his grand confessional “I Don’t Want To Change You.” The show took opportunity of late-night TV’s potential for unique moments. Instead of a backing band, Rice brought a full seven-piece string section, and they served as the only accompaniment for his voice and his guitar. It sounded really nice! Watch it below.
My Favorite Faded Fantasy is out now on Warner Bros.
