A couple of weeks ago, Twin Shadow’s tour bus got into a bad multi-vehicle crash outside Denver. A lot of people were hurt. Frontman George Lewis Jr. had to have reconstructive surgery on his hand, and drummer Andy Bauer remains hospitalized. The band had to cancel the rest of their tour, of course, but Twin Shadow still managed to regroup in time to play their planned gig as musical guests on last night’s episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers. The group was visibly battered, performing without Bauer. Lewis obviously couldn’t play guitar with his hand wrapped in a cast. But they still managed, doing a stripped-back, haunted version of “I’m Ready,” a song from their new album “Eclipse.” And as an online bonus, Lewis and Zoe Kravitz, the model/singer/actress daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, sang a quiet and insinuating cover of Sade’s 1992 classic “No Ordinary Love.” Watch both performances below.
Eclipse is out now on Warner Bros.
